Hosts announced for Paul Henry's next vacation

paul-henry-showLast time Paul Henry took a vacation, one of his guest hosts delivered the highest ratings The Paul Henry Show had ever had. Next week, Paul is away again and TV3 have announced who will be hosting the show in his absence.

RadioLIVE host Ali Mau, The Edge Breakfast host Mike Puru and reporter Rebecca Wright will stand in for Paul Henry as guest hosts of The Paul Henry Show next week.

Ali Mau will be in the hot seat Wednesday 24 September; Rebecca Wright on Thursday 25 September; and Mike Puru on Friday 26 September.

The Paul Henry Show executive producer Fiona MacMillan says: “We had great fun bringing together a group of broadcasters and former broadcasters from very diverse backgrounds the last time Paul was away. Each of them made sure our “topical not typical” approach was well and truly preserved and I know Ali, Rebecca and Mike will do a fantastic job this time around.”

    Fantastic choices – the best of the best! I’d quite like to see Genevieve Westcott make a return to the guest host seat in the future, too – she was fun.

  • K

    Yeah these are great choices! All of them were great last time

    What does Rebecca actually do? She hardly ever presents items on the show now.
    Mike Puru should stick to selling underwear on that TVSN channel.

      That’s a good point – not sure. Since Mike Wesley-Smith has come on the show we’ve seen very little of her.

    I really liked Ali Mau last time – can TV3 please give her her own show? I was thinking a weekly lifestyle/culture show on Saturdays at 7pm. Film, fashion, music, home and garden, exhibitions, food, plays… all that good stuff.

    • K

      Yeah she so should have her own show ! Great ideas

    • Tania

      Yes, and a look in peoples’ homes like she did on ‘Homefront’ for TV One for a few years!

  • K

    Mike Wesley-Smith might have been ok too if they had more spaces to fill…he’s much improved since he first started on TPHS

    • Tania

      Mmmm … no. Good as a reporter, but I don’t think he’d have the confidence to host. Why does Jessie always look so nervous? He was shaking the other night when doing 9 in 10 from The Green Parrot.
