New look, new voices for the NZ Herald

Some of New Zealand's best-known and most thought-provoking writers will join the New Zealand Herald when the newspaper moves to compact format in two weeks.

The Herald's new “dream team” of columnists includes Deborah Hill Cone, Toby Manhire, Rhys Darby and Jeremy Wells.

Journalists Hill Cone and Manhire join Tapu Misa, Sir Robert Jones, Mai Chen, Brian Rudman and Claire Trevett on the newspaper's opinion pages, in the main news section, each week.

Comedian Rhys Darby will write a weekly column in the new-look entertainment section; Colin Hogg starts a weekly TVreview; while Sarah Daniell's 12 Questions is extended to join Rachel Glucina's The Diary as a twice-weekly offering. Ana Samways' extremely popular Sideswipe column maintains its daily prominence – on the back page of the entertainment section.

The new-look newspaper will have a specialist, stapled business liftout each day – business editor Liam Dann and KiwiSaver specialist Helen Twose join respected commentators Fran O’Sullivan and Brian Fallow. And the new-look liftout will offer specialist pages each day – small business on Mondays; Property Matters on Tuesdays; Business Traveller on Wednesdays and innovation on Thursdays. The Business on Fridays retains its specialist columns and features.

In sport, broadcaster and former “newsboy” Jeremy Wells and journalist Dana Johannsen join the line-up, alongside the likes of Chris Rattue, Ian Jones, Wynne Gray, David Leggat, Dylan Cleaver and Steve Deane.

Acclaimed writer Peter Calder will pen an observational news column each Wednesday, while Rudman and Phoebe Falconer round out the columnists in the expanded Metro pages.

“It’s essential that the new newspaper offers fresh perspectives, and a diverse range of voices. We’ll also have more room for more debate, reader letters and contributed columns,” said editor Shayne Currie.

“We’re pleased to be able to build our stable, and lead daily debate and discussion - through print and our digital platforms.”

The new-look NZ Herald hits the streets on September 10. Readers can keep up to date with the evolution of the new weekday Herald by visiting www.nzherald.co.nz/themoreyouknow
