WE ARE
A digital-first media company that brings influential journalism to informed audiences in intuitive ways.
Leaders in digital media since 2001.
Getting into inboxes, on screens and into the public discourse is what we do.
Honest journalism served up with intuitive products.

Private Media are leaders in reaching informed audiences with objective facts that drive passionate opinion. Or is that reaching passionate audiences with informed facts that drive objective opinion? Either way, we sit at the faultline between opinion and fact, hard-hitting journalism and intuitive products.

We’ve been doing it since you had to get your mum to hang up the phone to get on the internet.

And while 2020 has been a disrupted year at the end of a disrupted decade kicking off a disrupted century for media, we have not only endured but entered a period of unprecedented growth. That’s because we have spent the last 20 years building loyal audiences, fostering deep engagement and developing the right business models to stay commercially viable.

Our portfolio

We might be a bit backwards, but we believe the media should act in the interests of its audience. And we value each of the distinct audiences our mastheads serve, be it policy professionals, entrepreneurial types or political tragics. Learn more about our publications and the audiences they serve.

AS WE GROW, WE’RE ON THE HUNT OF OUR KINDS OF PEOPLE. SO WHAT MAKES A PRIVATE MEDIA PERSON?
You're engaged and passionate about media, politics and policy.
You can improvise and make the most of every opportunity.
You're not a huge fan of hierarchy.
You're really good at what you do.
You're happy to see your ideas followed through on... immediately.
You don't want every day to be the same.
IF THAT SOUNDS LIKE YOU, DROP US A LINE.
