Business Breakfast and Breakfast
Weekdays from 6am

TV ONE’s Breakfast and Breakfast Business return on Monday 21 January, after a very successful 2007. Breakfast proved hugely popular in its tenth year on air, increasing its audience (in the key 18-49 and 25-54 year-old demographics) by over 25 per cent in the last quarter of 2007.

Hosted by Paul Henry and Pippa Wetzell, Breakfast kicks off the day with an in-depth look behind the headlines, highlights and analysis of overnight events, the latest entertainment and sports news, and interviews and information about the issues that affect New Zealanders. Roving reporter Tamati Coffey provides weather reports from all over New Zealand, and meets people from around the country, while award-winning ONE News correspondents keep viewers up-to-date with health and politics. In the studio Henry and Wetzell interview the people behind the news, and Peter Williams presents regular ONE News updates to Breakfast viewers. Breakfast Business screens every weekday morning at 6am, bringing viewers the latest business news and analysis, with new presenter Corin Dann. Breakfast Business provides a package of overseas market information, as well as the latest business and financial news from New Zealand. Dann goes behind the headlines to talk to New Zealand’s business leaders and newsmakers LIVE, and joins Paul and Pippa to provide business updates throughout Breakfast.
Wake up with Breakfast and Breakfast Business – everything Kiwis need to start the day, from 6am on TV ONE. The programmes are also available on-line at tvnz.co.nz and via broadband at tvnzondemand.co.nz.

Corin Dann is the new host of TVNZ’s dedicated business programme Breakfast Business.

Corin Dann is one of New Zealand’s leading economics and finance reporters. During a nine-year career in radio he has specialised in business and politics.

As Radio New Zealand’s economics correspondent, he provided expert commentary on the issues affecting the New Zealand economy as well as producing and presenting Insight Documentaries for the station.

Corin also has extensive experience as a parliamentary reporter both for Radio New Zealand and Newstalk ZB, and has been a back-up presenter for flagship Radio New Zealand programmes Morning Report and Checkpoint.

TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs Anthony Flannery said he was delighted to announce Corin’s appointment.

“During his time at Radio New Zealand, he has consistently broken stories that lead the news agenda on economic matters.

“He is committed to making Business Breakfast a “must watch” for anyone involved or interested in business and how it affects New Zealand.

“Corin will be a new face, bringing a new zeal to Breakfast Business. His expertise and passion make him a real asset to our morning team.”

Was interesting to see Michael Wilson back on TV One hosting Breakfast Business, and it was also good to see Kay Greggory hosting the weather around midday.

Close Of Business For Wilson & TVNZ. Expansion in the Finance News Market.

Veteran Business Broadcaster Michael Wilson finished his 10 year tenure on TVNZ’s ASB Business this morning. The final goodbye – rather unceremonious and with little fanfare.

The presenter took planned annual leave, but TVNZ representatives say it’s unclear if Wilson will return to the Finance desk for a last stint before he moves over to TV3.
Given TV3’s Sunrise begins in under two weeks, and the network’s formally acknowledged Wilson’s resignation, it’s and unlikely- if not awkward prospect.

In a bizarre sort of goodbye from breakfast co-hosts Paul Henry and Pippa Wetzel (bizarre being synonymous with Henry in recent times) the presenter signed off.
Perhaps the state broadcaster was seeking a quick and clean break, and most would argue they achieved it – although you couldn’t help but think a gift card and a few chockies wouldn’t have gone astray.


TVNZ spokesperson Rachel Lorimer says Wilson’s position will be advertised this Friday, but it’s been widely speculated that this is simply a formality and current Business Correspondent Owen Poland will be awarded the role.

Perhaps a fitting time for Poland to step into the role, Monday sees the introduction of ASB Business under the new banner “Breakfast business” (in other words- ASB Business without ASB’s business.) The program will screen at the slightly earlier timeslot of 6 A.M.

With just two weeks till TV3’s new entrant ‘Sunrise’ jumps into the fray it’s hard to imagine Wilson featuring in the shows debut, but this is Television and stranger things have happened.

When Wilson does jump into the TV3 Pool it’s likely to be in a luke warm reception. He won’t be presenting an entire program, rather news updates throughout the morning.


So, with both Channels offering an insight into the business days movers and shakers it seems only appropriate to ask ‘Who’s your money on?’

First a little background on the two contenders.

Wilson:

  • graduated from Canterbury university with a diploma in journalism in 1989.
  • has worked for TVNZ since 1989 as a news and current affairs reporter and presenter.
  • became the host of ASB Business upon the programs inception in 1997.
  • worked for worked for various media agencies including Radio New Zealand, National Business Review, Horizon Pacific Regional Television and Channel 10 in Australia.

  • Is instantly recognizable by most New Zealander’s as a seasoned broadcaster and all round nice guy. (Even if the only words they’ve ever heard him say were “Tomorrow on ASB Business”)

    Poland:

  • Has a degree in psychology from Waikato University and begun his broadcasting career 33 years ago as a radio journalist in Hamilton.
  • has been a business and economics reporter for the past 22 years.
  • Started his career at TV3 where he won the Qantas Prize for Best Television News Reporter / Business Editor.
  • Has a significantly lower profile and is seen as a more stern staple of New Zealand’s finance realm.

    In terms of formal education both hold similar qualifications. Each holds roughly twenty years of experience in New Zealand’s financial sector.

    So is it Wilson’s Winning Smile or Poland’s Stern Stammer that decides ‘Who your money’s on?’

  • Dose anyone know who will host Breakfast Business?
    I guess it will be Owen Poland.

    I don’t like him.

    Breakfast Business will be broadcast at 6am, and will include extended news, sport and weather updates from Monday September 24.
