Libby Middlebrook Joins Sunday Team

Libby Middlebrook Joins Sunday Team


TV ONE’s Sunday has a new addition, with Libby Middlebrook bringing her first story to programme this weekend. Middlebrook joins host Miriama Kamo, and reporting team John Hudson, Janet McIntyre and Ian Sinclair.

Sunday is New Zealand’s most-watched current affairs programme, with an average of 600,000 viewers tuning in each week so far this year.

Executive producer Briar McCormack is proud of the quality of stories the team deliver each week, saying, “No other current affairs programme can boast the depth and range of experience of the Sunday team. We are delighted to welcome Libby Middlebrook to the programme. Libby has a strong journalistic background in print and television, most recently with Fair Go. It is a great compliment to her that she has been invited to join the team.”

Middlebrook has been reporting on TV ONE’s Fair Go since 2009, and in that time she has investigated hundreds of consumer complaints, helping Kiwis to recover their money and tracking down fraudsters. She was closely involved in a recent high-profile case, where a landscaper was jailed for three years for ripping off his clients.

She says; “Working in long format current affairs has always been a dream of mine, so I’m absolutely delighted to join the Sunday programme. The people who work on the show are some of the very best in the business, and it will be a privilege to work alongside them.”

Middlebrook’s first story goes to air this weekend. She will take a look at ground-breaking new research on the use of smartphones, tablets and touchscreens by children in the first years of life. Do we really know about their impact on young developing minds?

Sunday is on TV ONE every Sunday night at 7.00pm.
