heads to Three with Newshub role
Oriini Kaipara, who made history in 2019 as the first woman with a moko kauae to read a major news bulletin, has moved to Three with a presenting role on Newshub Live at 4.30pm.
She replaces Susie Nordqvist, who went in the opposite direction in January when she moved to TVNZ to host A Current Affair.
Apart from appearing as a fill-in for TVNZ 1’s midday news bulletin, Kaipara worked on the state broadcaster’s te reo news show Te Karere. She previously worked at Māori Television and Mai FM.
Kaipara said: “I look forward to leading effective and positive change where Māori issues and interests are respectfully conveyed and relayed on our platforms – where our voices and stories are told fairly, accurately and objectively. I do not take this challenge lightly and trust that the mana of my people remains with me as I take on this new journey for all of us.”
