Michael Lamonato

I’m an FIA-accredited F1 journalist with a background in radio and print journalism.

My main claim to extremely limited fame is as a founder of Box of Neutrals and growing it from a humble start-up podcast into a national radio programme on ABC Grandstand.

I’m experienced in both the technical and presentation aspects of radio, having fulfilled roles panel operating, producing, and presenting in metro and national markets. I was ABC Grandstand’s go-to fill-in Breakfast announcer (when it was still around) and presented the ABC’s Commonwealth Games breakfast show in 2014.

I specialise in the written word, whiling away the daytime working as a Hansard reporter for the Parliament of Victoria, as well as writing as a columnist and F1 utility reporter for a number of publications.

From subediting to audio editing, proofreading to analysing, I have a track record of both knowing what these words mean and fulfilling their definitions.
I’m contactable via email, Twitter, LinkedIn, or a loud conversation on the Frankston line.
