TVNZ has announced the news team it will send to London for the 2012 games.

Coming live from the studio location overlooking Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, ONE News anchor Simon Dallow will be involved in news programmes at both ends of the day, starting with Breakfast.  He will feature hourly throughout the broadcast, which will coincide with the end of the competing day in London.

Then, as the day starts in London, Dallow will be live across the evening shows here in New Zealand, on ONE News at 6, Close Up, and Tonight.   He will present stories from the athletes, as well as their families, both in the lead up to their events, and following the events themselves.

“It will be great to be in the thick of it in London for the 2012 games”, says Dallow.  “The games are a time when Kiwis can get together and rally behind our team as a nation, and I’m really excited to bring New Zealand news of our athletes’ triumphs.” Continue reading »

David Tamihere will be back in court in November to defend charges that he broke his parole conditions when TVNZ’s Sunday program allegedly flew him over an area of the Coromandel that he’s prohibited to go without his parole officer’s permission.

This should be an interesting case.  Was Tamihere aware that flying over  the Coromandel would breach his parole conditions?  Were Sunday aware of this?  Was there anyone from Sunday or TVNZ in court this morning for today’s hearing?

Happy Birthday Shortland Street!

The TV2 soap this week celebrated its 20th anniversary with a feature-length episode on Monday and a glitzy party in Auckland last night where past and present cast members came together to revel in the fact the show has lasted the test of time.

The above photo of a fancy birthday cake featuring an ambulance and TV set was posted on the Shortland Street Facebook page yesterday.

So a big congratulations to Shortland Street for reaching the 20-year milestone.

We’re looking forward to the 21st stories next year.
