Tomasz Lis began his career in the public Polish Television (TVP) in 1990 after winning an open competition for the post of a newsreader.

From late 2010 to February 2012: editor-in-chief of the current affairs weekly "Wprost."

In March 2012 he became editor-in-chief of "Newsweek Polska."

He is now restricted to broadcasting online, as the government have tried to silence his criticism and attempts to hold them to account.
