Sir Paul Holmes

SIR PAUL HOLMES

Sir Paul Holmes was a colleague, friend and mentor to many of us at MediaWorks.

He'll be sadly missed by his many friends and former co-workers across our business, and the broadcasting industry as a whole.

Paul was a formidable competitor who lifted the bar for broadcasting in both radio and television. His impact on the media landscape over the past two decades can't be over-estimated.

While Paul was fiercely competitive on the screen and behind the microphone, in private he was always quick to lend his support and provide advice. His charisma and natural empathy with Kiwis from all walks of life, as well as his willingness to roll up his sleeves and get the job done won him the respect of colleagues and rivals alike.

The thoughts of everyone at MediaWorks are with Sir Paul's family and friends at this sad time.


Sussan Turner, Paul Maher, Mark Jennings and the MediaWorks family
