Clair Weaver new LiSTNR Head of Factual

Clair Weaver has been appointed to a newly created role of Head of Factual for LiSTNR.

Weaver has worked 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. Most recently she was LiSTNR’s Investigations Editor.

Executive Head of LiSTNR Podcasts Grant Tothill 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.

Clair is well credentialled to build on the achievements of the teams led by both Melanie Withnall and Jennifer Goggin. I am confident she will provide strong leadership of the newly formed Factual team as LiSTNR continues its investment into a growing sector of the podcast audience landscape, allowing LiSTNR original podcasts to continue to grow the audiences that matter, for improved commercialisation opportunities.”

Weaver said:

“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.”

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