‘The Daily’ Host Splits From His Husband, Dating Female Producer

Michael Barbaro
Michael Barbaro — the rising-star host of the New York Times’ hit podcast “The Daily” — has split with his husband and is now dating the show’s executive producer, Lisa Tobin, Page Six at The NY Post is reporting.

Media insiders have been buzzing behind the scenes over Barbaro and Tobin’s relationship — which the couple has revealed to their Times bosses, sources said.

Political correspondent-turned-podcast star Barbaro married fellow Yale grad Timothy Levin in 2014 and has reportedly been known to make references to his husband on “The Daily.” New York state Supreme Court records reveal that the couple have filed for an uncontested divorce, and that the proceedings are ongoing.

Page Six cited sources who insisted that Barbaro and Tobin’s relationship did not begin until Barbaro and Levin had already parted ways.

A source added of Barbaro and Tobin: “They work very closely together … part of the show’s success is this team’s close work.” The source said there is “nothing inappropriate” about the relationship.

Tobin was hired in 2016 by the Times as its first executive producer for audio, arriving from Boston’s WBUR.

Barbaro’s worked at the Times since 2005, but has more recently shot to stardom as host of “The Daily,” with 5 million listeners a month.
