MediaWorks TV is delighted to confirm that Kanoa Lloyd will join Ingrid Hipkiss and Emma Brannam in the 3News weather presenting team.
Lloyd joins TV3 from the Mai FM breakfast show. Her previous roles include presenting FOUR Live.
Lloyd will work fulltime in news; but her main responsibility will be presenting weekend weather, replacing Josh Heslop who is heading overseas.
“I’m really looking forward to the challenge of working in news and being part of the 3News team,” says Lloyd. “It can be a little daunting learning a whole new set of skills but Ingrid is a dream teacher and she’s made the whole process so easy. I’m thrilled to be working alongside so many people that I really respect and admire.”
TV3 Director of News and Current Affairs, Mark Jennings, says “Kanoa has instinctive broadcasting skills. She has that special ability to reach out, through the camera, and engage the viewer. The weather forecast can often be complicated but the viewer wants the presentation of this information to be clear and simple. Kanoa can do this and at the same time inject her own warm personality into the broadcast. I think she is going to be very popular.”
Lloyd will present her first weather segment on September 27.
