Mothers and Daughters Podcast

27-06-2022 • 1 hr 7 mins


Britt Cohen is the entertainment reporter for Today Extra and her mother Lauren has been a travel agent for 40 years. They sit down with us to talk about everything from red carpets to being live on camera and of course how the pandemic has affected Lauren's work. The good news, 11 years into her time with Channel 9, Britt loves her job, and for Lauren a 2-year break, she's back and busier than ever!


Lauren and her husband moved to Sydney from South Africa, to give their children a safer and better life. They were given a chance to come to Australia and jumped on it, within a few weeks, they were in a new country, with no family, no jobs and unsure where they would set up their family but what they did know, was they were safe. It was an extremely touching moment where Britt is grateful to her parents for making the sacrifice for them.


Britt shared about her rise at Channel 9 from Intern to Entertainment and Lifestyle reporter for Today Extra. When we recorded, it was just before the Logies, where she looked amazing and did a great job reporting in the morning after a very long night!!
