TVNZ's Williams makes it a Double at the Weekend

TVNZ's Peter Williams makes it a Double at the Weekend

TVNZ front man Peter Williams, fresh from a successful stint presenting the Beijing Olympics, will be joining Bernadine Oliver- Kerby as the news reading duo for ONE News at weekends.

The new arrangement begins this weekend.

Bernadine Oliver- Kerby has been an established and highly popular sole presenter of the weekend bulletins for some years.

However TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs, Anthony Flannery, says he's opted for a double-reader format to get consistency right across the week.

"Bernadine and Peter are both exceptional talents, and impressive performers either in the studio or out in the field. With the two of them, we are able to duplicate the option we have on weeknights where one hosts the News from the studio, and the other presents a breaking story from the scene," Flannery says.

"News doesn't stop at the weekend so we want a fully-resourced team of top newsreaders then, as well as during the week."

Peter will continue presenting Breakfast News Monday to Wednesday.

Thursday and Friday Breakfast bulletins will be presented by Alison Mau.
