ONE News cuts weekend presenter

EditorNews Make a Comment

TVNZ is changing its weekend news presenting line-up to a single presenter for all 6pm weekend bulletins.

The weekend restructure means that Bernadine Oliver-Kerby’s role is redundant and her fulltime employment is at an end. However, she will continue to provide cover for ONE News.

The change is effective immediately and Peter Williams will present weekend bulletins solo.

TVNZ head of news and current affairs John Gillespie acknowledged Oliver-Kerby’s contribution to TVNZ spanning more than 20 years, including Olympic and Commonwealth Games coverage, Rugby and Netball World Cups and numerous news and sports anchoring roles.

“We are mindful that weekends won’t be the same without Bernadine, and are delighted that she will provide cover for the weeknight News,” Gillespie said.

ONE News weekday bulletins will continue in their current presenter format.
