Sean Plunkett to host The Nation

TV3 has announced via twitter that Sean Plunkett will be the new presenter on their Saturday morning political show, The Nation.

Plunkett takes up the role after Stephen Parker recently vacated the position.

Plunkett recently vacated his position at Radio New Zealand after tensions grew around the broadcasters refusal to allow him to participate outside of the organisation.

TV3 Political Editor Duncan Garner will continue to conduct political interviews on the programme.

The Nation airs on Saturday mornings on TV3 at 11am and repeats at 8am on Sundays.
