The Briefing welcomes Antoinette Lattouf as permanent host

Multi-award-winning journalist, Antoinette Lattouf, is joining LiSTNR’s daily news podcast, The Briefing, as a 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, 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 this year.

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. Source:

It sounds to me like a left wing flog fest

The problem with people like Antoinette and the discussion on these shows is they judge every single facet of society through the lens of skin colour and gender

PJ, you’re right. Think of it as Triple J’s Hack for grown ups.

It’s getting to be a crazy world these days Antoinette, a bit like the Rocky Horror Show – “it’s just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right” and somewhere in the chorus line are nutters like Clive Palmer. I reckon you’re doing OK
