Paul Henry Show Line-Up Builds
Last year we told you about MediaWorks New Zealand’s plans to leverage their TV, Radio and digital assets in one swoop each morning through TV3 and RadioLIVE with a new breakfast show fronted by Paul Henry.
Today the group took the next step in appointing a couple of key additional people to join to the line-up.
Including award winning 3News and RadioLIVE presenter Hilary Barry as News anchor and newcomer Perlina Lau as social media presenter
MediaWorks Group Head of News, Mark Jennings says: “Hilary is one of the most talented broadcasters in the country and it is time to see and hear more of her. She is a world-class newsreader; but she is also an astute observer of life and what makes New Zealand tick. Hilary’s personality and wry sense of humour makes her the perfect foil for Paul.”
Hilary will top and tail the day and continue to present the 3News bulletin with Mike McRoberts, each weeknight on TV3 and RadioLIVE.
“While Hilary is a very familiar face, Perlina Lau will be new to many people. Perlina has worked behind the scenes at 3News but she is very talented in front of the camera too. Her understanding of social media will bring a new dimension to the morning programme and I think our viewers and listeners will really enjoy being able to interact with her. She will be their voice!”
The Paul Henry show will broadcast weekdays 6am-9am on RadioLIVE and TV3, though RadioWorks haven’t given away just yet when the show will premiere.
