Veteran broadcaster Paul Holmes is to front the new version of the political current affairs show Agenda.
The weekend political show – wholly made with taxpayer funding – is back on air this month with the new name Q&A.
The former Newstalk ZB breakfast host has been hired for the main hosting role, but TVNZ political editor Guyon Espiner is expected to provide long-run interviews – as he did on the old Agenda.
I think it is sensible have the Political Editor doing the main interviews as he has more in depth knowledge of the issues.
It will be interesting to see how it compares to the old Agenda.
