Close Up with Mark Sainsbury

Weeknights at 7pm from Monday 22 January on One

TV ONE’s nightly current affairs show ‘Close Up’ returns this week with its signature mix of high-quality, reporter-driven, current affairs stories and new host Mark Sainsbury. Mark was named host of ‘Close Up’ late last year, with Paul Henry joining the team as the new support host.

“‘Close Up’ is a terrific show put together by a wonderful team,” says Mark Sainsbury. “It’s one of the great jobs in current affairs. I enjoy working on the show immensely and I’m very much looking forward to putting my own stamp on it.”
‘Close Up’ is New Zealand’s most watched current affairs programme, covering politics, sport, entertainment and the issues that touch the lives of New Zealanders. The programme’s dedicated team of experienced and award-winning field reporters cover stories from all over New Zealand while, in the studio, Sainsbury and Henry interview the newsmakers of the day.

For in-depth coverage of the day’s events, join the ‘Close Up’ team every weeknight at 7pm on TV ONE.
