The Mamamia Media Company has announced that Elfy Scott has been appointed to the role of Editor.

29 year old Scott is an award-winning journalist, presenter, podcast host and producer. She has just released her debut non-fiction book, ‘The One Thing We’ve Never Spoken About,’ which focuses on the silence and stigma that surrounds complex mental health conditions in Australia.

Scott began her career at BuzzFeed News, working as the newsroom’s first science reporter and her journalism has featured in publications such as The Guardian, The Saturday Paper, BuzzFeed News, SBS, Vice, Mamamia and Broadly.

Scott is also a podcast host and producer, having helmed the Spotify exclusive Australian politics show ‘Left Right Out’, and environmental news series ‘The Green Canary.’

She was previously the senior producer and host of the daily online news show The Junkee Takeaway on Facebook Watch, and has experience collaborating with brands such as Red Bull, Google and Greenpeace.

Scott says “I could not be more thrilled to take on the role of Editor at Mamamia. It’s a privilege to work with such an established, trusted media brand for Australian women and I’m beyond excited to work with such a talented and brilliant group of writers and creators.”

“I look forward to playing my part and lending my voice to the website as the team grows and continues to produce content that is informative, impactful, and entertaining.”

 Rosie Squires, Editorial Director at Mamamia, says “Elfy has such a unique combination of journalistic experience across written content, podcasting and broadcast journalism along with her exceptional producing and presenting skills. She is a huge talent on the keyboard, behind the pod mic, in front of a camera and in a newsroom.”

“She is also a natural leader and role model both to young women in the media and within the wider community. These qualities are all innate to what we do at Mamamia as a media company whose purpose is to make the world a better place for women and girls. I am so excited to welcome her into the content team in this important leadership role.”
