TVNZ Political Editor Guyon Espiner will join TV3 in the New Year, as a journalist on flagship current affairs programme 60 Minutes.

Director of News and Current Affairs, Mark Jennings, says he is delighted to have Guyon joining the team.

“When you get an opportunity to snap up a journalist of Guyon’s calibre, you don’t hesitate,” he says.

“I have a great deal of respect for his work; he breaks stories and tells them well. He is a great addition to our 60 Minutes team.”

Guyon has been TVNZs political editor since 2006, having joined the network in 2003. Prior to TVNZ, Guyon had ten years experience in journalism, including working at Wellington’s Evening Post, and a stint as political editor of the Sunday Star Times. He attended Canterbury University, and the Wellington Polytechnic Journalism School (now Massey). He writes a political column in North & South.

60 Minutes is TV3’s weekly current affairs programme. Presented by Mike McRoberts, it is a comprehensive blend of local and international reports, and interviews with people making the headlines, produced by some of New Zealand’s best investigative journalists.

Guyon will take up his new role in February 2012.
