Lisa Tobin

Lisa Tobin (@lisannette) is the executive producer of audio at The New York Times, where she oversees all programming, including The Daily, a twenty-minute daily news report that launched in February of 2017.

Before coming to The Times, she was the managing producer of program development at WBUR, where she created shows like Modern Love and Dear Sugars. Her first foray into audio was as an intern at a commercial station in Seattle because she didn’t fully understand the difference between that and public radio. (Now she does.)


The Daily podcast has brought rich sound production and narrative storytelling together with daily news and New York Times journalism.
