Antoinette Lattouf to join Listnr’s The Briefing line up

Award winning journalist Antoinette Lattouf will join The Briefing as a regular, permanent host after appearing as a guest host on the podcast since August last year.

The announcement:

LiSTNR’s popular daily news podcast, The Briefing, today announced that multi award-winning journalist, Antoinette Lattouf, is joining the show as a regular, permanent host, alongside hosts Tom Tilley, Jan Fran, Katrina Blowers, and Jamila Rizvi.

Lattouf, who has been a guest host on The Briefing since August last year, adds another strong journalistic voice and her analytical mind to the rock star team.

She has worked on a range of news and current affairs programs at the ABC, SBS, Network 10 and triple j. In 2019 she was named as one of the AFR’s 100 Women of Influence. In 2021 Lattouf received a Women’s Agenda Leadership award and won B&T Women in Media’s Champion of Change award.

She is also the co-founder of Media Diversity Australia, a not for profit organisation that seeks to increase cultural and linguistic diversity in mainstream media and has written her first book, How to Lose Friends and Influence White People, which will be published by Penguin Random House in May 2022.

Antoinette has been a guest commentator across television programs including Q&A, The Project, Studio10, Sky News, The Feed and ABC. She has written opinion pieces for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian, Women’s Agenda and Mamamia.

The Briefing Executive Producer, Dan Mullins, said: “With an enormous amount of experience across television, audio and online, and a big impact on both audiences and the media industry, we are delighted Antoinette will be joining us as a regular co-host. Her experience, perspective, connections, smarts, and cheekiness make her the perfect fit for The Briefing.”

Commenting on her new role, Lattouf said: “I’m going to be honest, anyone who knows me, knows I am not a morning person. I need a very compelling reason to get out of bed. But I couldn’t turn down an opportunity to join Tom, Katrina, Jan, and Jamila to host conversations about what’s making news and shaping our dinner table conversations. Plus, I was assured I’d get an intravenous coffee drip put in my arm.”

Launched in April 2020, The Briefing is consistently among Australia’s Top 20 podcasts in the CRA Australian Podcast Ranker.

The Briefing is available daily on the LiSTNR app.
