Broadcaster Ali Mau is joining RadioLIVE.

The Seven Sharp presenter will leave TVNZ to take up her RadioLIVE contract, teaming up with Willie Jackson to host a new early afternoon programme.

Jana Rangooni, General Manager – Talk Brands for MediaWorks Radio says:

“Ali is a hugely talented broadcaster. She’s smart, has strong opinions, a great sense of humour and the dynamic between her and Willie will create great talk radio. She is a fantastic addition to the RadioLIVE stable.”

Ali Mau has been a journalist for more than 20 years, reporting for news organisations in Australia, the United Kingdom and New Zealand, including a stint as London correspondent for China’s CTS Network, which broadcasts to over 50 million viewers. Her New Zealand television presenting work includes news programmes Newsnight, Breakfast, ONE News, Fair Go, Seven Sharp and lifestyle series Home Front.

The launch date for the new show will be announced in due course.

Ali Mau and Marc Ellis to guest host on More FM Auckland

MORE FM’s Auckland listeners will wake up to a new pair of voices next Monday, when broadcasters Ali Mau and Marc Ellis start a week-long stint as breakfast guest DJs.

Ali and Marc will be in the studio from Monday 27 June, while popular hosts Jeremy Corbett, Joe Cotton and Peter Dakin take a well deserved holiday.

“The Morning Fix team is taking a break, but listeners don’t need to worry, we’ve got a great pair of house-sitters in while we’re away,” says Corbett.

“I have full confidence that Ali will remember to water the plants, and Marc has promised not to hold any Facebook parties.”

“This is an honour,” says Ali Mau. “The Morning Fix is a great show and I will be doing my level best to keep Marc in line – not so sure about the plants’ chances though…”

Catch Marc and Ali on the MORE FM Auckland Morning Fill-In from Monday 27 June – Friday 1 July, on 91.8FM or online at
