TVNZ Newsreader To Undergo Surgery

One of the country's leading broadcasters Angela D'Audney has been admitted to an Auckland hospital after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.

She is expected to undergo surgery tomorrow.

TVNZ's Managing Editor of News & Current Affairs Paul Cutler said the tumour had been detected by a MRI scan late last week.

Mr Cutler said Angela had become concerned only a week earlier when she had difficulty reading scripts on air. "Angela is a perfectionist and it troubled her that while she could cope with interviews and ad lib's, suddenly she was having trouble co-ordinating prepared scripts."

Mr Cutler said Angela had subsequently suffered a slight speech impairment. "This symptom of her condition is especially sad as I have always regarded her enunciation as probably the finest of all the broadcasters I have worked with."

He said Angela was receiving strong support from a group of close friends and colleagues."
