3 News political reporter Rebecca Wright is leaving New Zealand for a staff writing position at CNN in Hong Kong.
Wright told Dannews.co.nz she is excited to have been given the opportunity to work with some of the best in the news business.
“I’m looking forward to getting my feet under the desk and learning how everything works from an amazing team of people at CNN. It’s all happened during the election campaign so it hasn’t really sunk in It almost feels like it’s happening to someone else.”
Among the team at CNN in Hong Kong are former TVNZ reporter Phil O’Sullivan and popular Australian anchor, Anna Coren.
Rebecca is very proud of 3 News’ coverage of this year’s election and lists it among highlights of her four years at TV3.
Her last day at 3 News is 7 December and she starts at CNN International on December 19.
