Grey-s-Anatomy-sandra-ohOne of the original cast members of TV2’s Grey’s Anatomy is to leave the show at the end of the 10th series.

Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go,” an emotional Oh tells THR. “It’s such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well. [Cristina] wants to be let go, and I am ready to let her go. We have to start the process, story-wise, for the Grey’s writers to think of why she’s going to go.”

Oh, who plays Cristina Yang, will be sorely missed as will her character. Continue reading »

I know at least one person who won’t be happy about this announcement but Jason Gunn is moving to Mediaworks in 2014.  Granted, it’s only Mediaworks Radio but how long before we see him popping up on TV3?  Can anyone remember the last time Jason appeared on TVNZ?  Perhaps the return of Thingee will be on a different channel as well…

Broadcaster Jason Gunn has signed with MediaWorks Radio, owners of many of the country’s biggest radio brands, including The Edge, The Rock, MORE FM, RadioLIVE, The Sound, The Breeze, George FM and Mai FM.

MediaWorks Radio CEO Belinda Mulgrew says:  “Jason is an extremely talented broadcaster and I’m very happy to welcome him to our family.” Continue reading »

rugby-championshipWhile the Northern hemisphere competition is practically all in the same time zone, the southern hemisphere tournament has up to 15 hours between them and some pretty hefty long haul flights. Not only will the challenge be physical, the exhaustion of all that travel and adjustment will be gruelling.

Big stadiums, big-name players and even bigger action – the Rugby Championship is back for its second year and SKY Sport has LIVE coverage of every match of the 13-game championship.

SKY Sport’s proven and experienced commentary team of Grant Nisbett, Justin Marshall, Tony Johnson, as well as Scotty Stevenson, Melodie Robinson and Ian Smith will be there providing all the analysis and insights for New Zealand matches.

The All Blacks have a perfect Rugby Championship record, with six wins, zero losses, and will welcome back captain Richie McCaw after he missed the June Internationals against France. Continue reading »

While one off ratings don’t really mean too much in the greater scheme of things, they are interesting, especially if they may be forming part of a trend.

After dumping out to one of their lowest ratings in months on Friday, last night saw the largest separation between Seven Sharp and Campbell Live since the debut in February.
