The largest Women’s Media Company in Australia, Mamamia has announced an important and exciting new chapter in the evolution of its editorial side of our business. Mamamia will no longer have a single editor.

Mamamia’s editor-in-chief Kate de Brito has been appointed editor-in-chief of news.com.au.

True to our editorial philosophy of “what women are talking about today”, all of our content from both Mamamia News and Mamamia Entertainment will be integrated throughout the homepage as is currently the case.

The Head of Mamamia Entertainment will be Holly Wainwright who will be working closely with Monique Bowley as Executive Producer, Podcasts and our new Executive Producer, Video, Briony Benjamin.

Wainwright has been at Mamamia since we were a start-up back in Lime St when she came to us from Bauer. She is a journalist and editor with over 20 years experience in magazines and digital publishing, and hosts two of our podcasts, I Don’t Know How She Does It and This Glorious Mess.

And our new Commercial Director, Claire Harrison will work very closely with Rebecca, Holly and Gemma to continue delivering best in market branded storytelling.
