Sam
Koslowski

Co-Founder of The Daily Aus - Australia’s largest youth news publication

If we're not innovating, and we're not trying out something different, then what's the point?

Profile

Business leader, journalist, presenter and commentator, Sam Koslowski is the co-founder of The Daily Aus alongside Zara Seidler.

The Daily Aus is Australia’s leading social-first news organisation targeted at young Australians with an audience of over one million Australians per month engaging with its social accounts, podcasts and newsletter.

Current Work:

Sam and Zara not only run the business and produce the content, but also anchor the flagship TDA daily podcast. It has become one of Australia’s most-followed news podcasts with largest under 30 audience and a community that is ever-growing. Having started out providing news for family and friends through Instagram posts in 2017, Koslowski and Seidler have expanded their audience to young Australians with The Daily Aus through social media feeds, podcasts, and daily newsletters.

The duo say they aim to introduce quality journalism to young audiences to build a healthy and consistent media consumption habit. The Daily Aus audience is nearly all under 35 years old, with most readers citing it as their primary news source, and the flagship TDA daily podcast is one of Australia’s most-followed news podcasts. On Instagram, their community is now one of the largest news audiences on social media in Australia, and the largest under 30.

In 2022, Sam & Zara were listed in the Forbes 30 under 30, and their first book with Penguin Random House, is set to be released in mid-2023.
