SCA appoints Clair Weaver as LiSTNR Head of Factual


SCA has appointed Clair Weaver to the newly created role of Head of Factual for LiSTNR.

Weaver brings a wealth of experience in investigative journalism, editorial policy, and news producing.

Her career includes working with 60 Minutes as a producer, 9News Sydney as an Investigations Editor, The Australian Women’s Weekly as a senior journalist and as a reporter for the Sunday Telegraph and London’s Evening Standard.

More recently, as LiSTNR’s Investigations Editor, Weaver has worked across many different areas of the News and Information podcast slate.

In making the announcement, Executive Head of LiSTNR Podcasts Grant Tothill said said: “Clair’s contributions have been instrumental in the success of The Briefing and her strong understanding of crime reporting and long-form storytelling has contributed to the creation of LiSTNR’s compelling docu-series, including seasons one and two of the highly successful Secrets We Keep.

Weaver says “I’m really excited to take up the reins as we enter a new chapter in Factual. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to lead a team of such talented, creative, and dedicated people, and I’m looking forward to working with them to create excellent podcasts and continue growing our audiences.”

Weaver’s appointment is effective immediately and follows the pending departure of Head of News and Information, Melanie Withnall, and the recent departure of LiSTNR Original Podcasts Head of Factual and Drama, Jennifer Goggin.
