TVNZ’s successful Q+A programme will return in 2014 with a strong line up for election year.

Rachel Smalley joins the presenting team alongside host Susan Wood, TVNZ political editor Corin Dann and deputy political editor Michael Parkin. As part of the News and Current Affairs team at TVNZ, Rachel will also have the opportunity to file stories for Sunday on TV ONE.

Q+A is New Zealand's leading political programme, featuring an hour of live newsmaker interviews and political debate. The show will continue to be run by executive producer Maryanne Ahern who is joined by producer Claire Silvester.

TVNZ’s Current Affairs Editor Briar McCormack says, “Rachel has established herself as one of New Zealand’s top current affairs interviewers and I am very pleased she has decided to join the Q+Ateam. I am looking forward to working with her in what promises to be an exciting year for political current affairs.”

Susan Wood adds, “I’m thrilled to have Rachel joining us on Q+A this year. We already have a great working relationship at Newstalk ZB and we’ll be building on that to give viewers New Zealand’s most incisive and compelling political programme.”

“I am looking forward to working with both Rachel and Corin Dann in what is going to be a very exciting and important year with Q+A leading the political debate.”

Rachel Smalley is the host of Newstalk ZB’s Early Edition. Her career in political and international journalism is extensive, having reported from Europe, Africa, Asia and America, covering elections in Britain, the United States, France and New Zealand.

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."

Q+A is back soon to TV ONE
Sunday screens Sundays at 7.00pm on TV ONE
