About Michael Lamonato

I’m a motorsport writer, producer and digital presenter with a background in radio and print journalism. I can offer you, dear reader or SEO bot, a complete package of work to fulfil your media needs.

A short view back to the past. This all started with the founding of Box of Neutrals, which I grew with my fellow university-age co-presenters from community radio into a national radio programme on ABC Grandstand. It continues as an independent weekly podcast.

Since BoN I’ve also taken up the anchor role for the Strategy Report podcast, a race-by-race analysis of grand prix tactics and, increasingly, Ferrari mistakes.

You’ll also hear my voice on In the Fast Lane, the official podcast of the Australian Grand Prix, interviewing a who’s who of F1 royalty and talking about Boss Coffee with my cohost.

More recently I’ve added Extreme E’s official podcast Off Track to the rotisserie, conducting feature interviews and race analyses as well as presenting digital video packages for social media channels.

Much of this stems from a history of radio work, 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.

And I’m not just a pretty voice. I produce — record, edit and publish — almost all of the podcasts I present with my more than a decade of audio production experience, offering clients a complete package of work.

Once you’re finished watching and listening to me, you can then read my work, with the written word still my traditional home. I write as a columnist and F1 utility for a number of specialist and general publications, and I’m also a subeditor for Australian sport website the Roar and engaged in public service as a Hansard reporter and subeditor for the Parliament of Victoria.

From subediting to audio editing, proofreading to analysing, I have a track record of both knowing what these words mean and fulfilling their definitions. And I can tell you more about it and even do some work for you if you like.

I’m contactable via email, Twitter, LinkedIn, or a loud conversation on the Frankston line.
