Our Team

Mediaweek is the leading media trade publication in Australia in both readership and industry respect. Achieving this has been a 33-year process since being founded by Philip Luker in 1990 before being acquired by James Manning in 1999, and being helmed by James for over 20 years. Now under the day-to-day stewardship of Trent Thomas, Mediaweek has a monthly average of 300,000 users a month and the #1 readership in the sector.

I enjoy the variety. Being able to report on all aspects of the industry allows me to understand the greater context of how each component of media intertwines with one another.
Jasper Baumann, Journalist
Mediaweek is collaborative in team efforts, especially when there is a common goal for the team, and flexible in helping each other out when we need it. We are also supportive of each other’s individual pursuits with stories and projects, no tall poppy syndrome at all, and have each other’s backs.
Alisha Buaya, Agency Editor
The Mediaweek team has worked hard over the last couple of years to build on the already solid foundation and name of the company to publish stories that matter to the industry. I believe the industry sees that and respects it.
