Elle Marsh appointed features and field producer on 7am podcast, with a grant from the Judith Neilson Institute

Schwartz Media is pleased to announce Elle Marsh has been appointed features and field producer on the daily news podcast 7am – a position supported by the Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas.

Marsh has a film and audio-storytelling background. She has worked in radio, podcasting and documentary making, previously at The Age and also for SBS, Al Jazeera, Vice and independent production houses.

Marsh said: “I’m incredibly excited to join the talented team at the 7am podcast, bringing the stories that matter straight from the field into the headphones of our listeners.”

Schwartz Media’s editor-in-chief, Erik Jensen, said Marsh would help expand the ambition of 7am and deepen the stories being told.

“With the support of the Judith Neilson Institute, Elle will help 7am follow stories into the field. She is creative and insightful and will push our storytelling in new directions.”

Mark Ryan, the executive director of the Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas, said: “The Institute believes that the best way to champion quality journalism is to help journalists do more of it. Our support for this new position means 7am can chase more stories that, hopefully, make a lasting impact for journalism.”

Since it launched in late May, 7am has had more than two million downloads. The show has been featured by The New York Times and topped the iTunes chart. It has become a key part of the Schwartz Media stable, alongside The Monthly and The Saturday Paper.
