One News Napier Bureau To Open

One News Napier Bureau To Open

TVNZ Chief Executive Officer, Ian Fraser, today announced the establishment of a news bureau in Napier to strengthen TVNZ's news coverage of events in the wider Hawke's Bay region.

"Part of our plans for ONE NEWS includes increasing our focus on regional coverage. Our Rotorua bureau has been in operation for the past 18 months and has been an outstanding success - it has provided more stories and live crosses from there than ever before. A bureau in Napier will allow us to provide our viewers with more indepth coverage of activities in a region that is an economic powerhouse for the country."

Effective Monday 12 August 2002, ONE NEWS reporter Eva Hay will be based in Napier, assisted by cameraman Murray Sawyer. The ONE NEWS Napier bureau will cover the area from Gisborne to Dannevirke, with an estimated population of around 300,000. This region is one of the largest horticultural providers to the economy with substantial pastoral, dairy and venison farming, and almost one third of the country's wine industry based there.

"This expansion into a key part of the country helps us to further reach and serve the wider New Zealand viewing public," said Mr Fraser.
