True Crime podcast from NewsCast makes its debut


NewsCast, News Corp Australia’s on-demand audio arm, has today released The Missing Australia, a new six-episode true crime podcast investigating unsolved missing persons cases across the country.

The Missing Australia examines some of the 38,000+ missing persons reports made to police each year – that’s one every 14 minutes.

Hosted by former policeman Meni Caroutas (pictured below), The Missing Australia relies on the simple truth that someone, somewhere, knows something. These are cases that can be solved and this podcast sets out to do that.

Investing in and producing new episodes of The Missing Australia under its True Crime Australia arm, NewsCast will build on the success of Caroutas’ freelance work investigating missing persons cases.

Editorial Director (Audio) Dan Box says NewsCast is pleased to welcome The Missing Australia franchise to its suite of programming.

“Meni Caroutas has done some outstanding work with this podcast. Again and again he has uncovered new leads.”

“By helping put these cases back in the headlines we hope it might be possible to generate even more new information.”

Caroutas says “The more people we reach, the more chance someone with information about a case will come forward and hopefully help police solve one of these cases.”
