TV3 has confirmed it has poached TVNZ’s political editor Guyon Espiner.
He will work as a journalist for current affairs show 60 Minutes, starting in February.
Espiner has been TVNZ’s political editor since 2006 and also hosted the Sunday morning programme Q+A for the state broadcaster.
I can remember Guyon starting in the press gallery in the 1990s, but that just makes me feel old!
Certainly a coup for TV3 to pick Guyon up, and good to see them beefing up 60 minutes. I suspect Guyon will appreciate a less hectic lifestyle as his two roles of press gallery in Wellington and Q+A every weekend must have been draining.Tags: Guyon Espiner, TV3, TVNZ
