The news of Paul Henry returning to breakfast TV leaves us wondering what direction TV3 will take their late news next year. All that has been confirmed is that there will still be a late-night show.
Presumably they they will bring back a refreshed Nightline which TV3 have said would sit in reserve for future years.
Whether or not they stick with the current format of The Paul Henry Show, could Ali Mau or Mike Puru be a possibility? Both have filled in for Paul during the year. Or perhaps they’ll keep Janika ter Allen in the late night slot to present the news solo. We probably can’t rule out Sacha McNeil getting the job again either, especially with the new show replacing Firstline.
And what does this mean for Marcus Lush who currently hosts RadioLIVE’s breakfast show? Maybe this will see him move back to TV (Newsnight, anyone?)
Paul Henry was big news on twitter yesterday with many I’m sure wondering the same as this guy:
