Newshub (including The Project NZ)


#762

Why not launch the first episode as the appearance on AM Show finishes.


#763

Set to have a TV Feature on Newshub Nation first I believe


#764

Makes sense I guess but AM Show obviously the bigger rater.


#765

Emma Jolliff and Simon Shepherd to replace Lisa Owen as new co-hosts on Newshub Nation from next Saturday.

(29-30/9/2018) Ollie Ritchie presenting weather on Newshub Live at 6pm this weekend.


#766

(4-5/10/2018) Lucy Warhurst presented Newshub Live at 4pm this afternoon.

Sam Ackerman presenting sport on Newshub Live at 6pm tonight.


#767

(6-7/10/2018) Susie Nordqvist and Michael Morrah presenting Newshub Live at 6pm this weekend. Mike Puru presented the weather on Saturday.



#768

Is it just me or do Newshub have a big pool of people who just parent whatever they’re asked or whoever’s floating around the newsroom at the time? Seems like a really big lot of random. people doing this that and whatever wherever haha


#769

Perhaps more willing than TVNZ to let young reporters present but there doesn’t seem to be an obvious order to it.


#771

I personally love that Newshub is using a variety of talent. It showcases that it is striving to be a multi-platform service where its journalists have an array of skills.


#772

And depth of talent.


#773

Gemma Flynn, New Zealand Olympic athlete and wife of former All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, filling in for Mark Richardson on The AM Show today (Tues 9 Oct, 2018).


#774

Ooh yes. How did she go?


#775

At the same time as they promote their own talent to read news, they do this :thinking:


#776

She seems a very nice lady but hasn’t quite nailed the autocue…


#777

Has anyone seen Gemma Coombe on the telly lately?


#778

She left Newshub in May to travel.


#779

That’s a pity. She was such a versatile talent.


#780

(13-14/10/2018) Sacha McNeil filling in for Melissa Davies on Newshub Live at 6pm this weekend with Tom McRae. Melissa presented 6pm during the week.

Tom is presenting sport.


#781

I find it strange that either Nikki didn’t continue to present sport from Mt Smart (where she was reporting), or that there wasn’t a fill-in for her :thinking:


#782

The project hosting team tonight - Paddy Gower, Nadine Higgins and Rove McManus.
