Hailing from sun-soaked Brisbane, Loughlin quite suitably wears many hats. Experience working in the disability, education and publishing sectors drives his compelling, probing and socially-grounded journalism. Now in Melbourne, Loughlin produces content across video, audio and print. Through television, podcast and radio formats, Loughlin pursues important stories and conversations on a local and national scale.
In 2019, Loughlin developed Minds in Tune, a program spotlighting mental health literacy through conversations with experts and local musicians. Loughlin returned to SYN in 2022 with Classroom Music, exploring the world of children’s music, and That Summer, uncovering the summers that changed listeners’ lives.
This year, he’s developing new ways to report the news as SYN’s News & Current Affairs Content Producer. Email [email protected] to pitch stories and contribute to current affairs at SYN.
