Schwartz Media and LiSTNR Launch Bite Size News Podcast Post: News in Five

June 6, 2022

Schwartz Media and SCA’s LiSTNR today announced their second podcast co-production, Post: News In Five following the launch of The Politics in April 2022.

Hosted by journalist and producer Ninah Kopel, Post: News In Five is a brand new, daily news short cast adapted from The Saturday Paper’s daily newsletter Post, written by Max Opray.

Each weekday morning, a five-minute episode will drop, bringing listeners up to speed on the top five news stories of the day. By 8.30am you will know what’s going on, why it’s going on and where it’s going next.

Schwartz Media editor-in-chief Erik Jensen said: "Post is a must read newsletter. It’s concise and incisive, with a very sharp news sense. It’s exciting to work with Ninah and LiSTNR to bring it to a new audience as a podcast.”

LiSTNR Head of News and Information, Melanie Withnall, said: “Post: News in Five is the perfect companion piece to The Politics, 7am and The Briefing, helping our audience to stay informed at any time of the day or night.”
