Smalley says, "I'm delighted to be joining such a strong team of political journalists on Q+A, in what will be a very exciting year. Politics is gripping the country at the moment, and the discussion and the debate will only grow as we edge closer to the election. "

"The chance to report on Sunday is something I also jumped at. It's the country's flagship long-form current affairs programme, and I'm looking forward to working alongside some of New Zealand's most experienced and talented journalists."
