Alison Mau Takes Prime Opportunity


Prime Television Chief Executive Officer Chris Taylor is very pleased to announce today that Alison Mau is joining the channel to work on the new Paul Holmes programme.

Alison will be a Senior Reporter for the programme and will also become Paul's Anchor Host when he is on leave or on an outside broadcast.

Chris Taylor says, "Alison is an extraordinarily gifted journalist and presenter. I am delighted that she will be joining Prime.

"Her move provides a great vote of confidence in both the continued direction of the Prime Network and Paul Holmes' new programme next year. Alison has proven herself as a versatile talent that will be an enormous asset to Prime as we forge ahead to achieve our ongoing ambitions in the New Zealand marketplace."

Alison Mau says, "I am delighted to be offered the opportunity to join the new Holmes team at Prime, some of whom I worked alongside during my 12 years at TVNZ, and for whom I have the greatest respect."

The role of Anchor/Senior Reporter is a perfect fit. It'll allow me to keep doing what I do best in the studio, and at the same time put my 20 years' experience as a journalist to good use out in the field.

"I am indebted to all my colleagues at TVNZ over the years for their friendship, and will especially miss the hugely talented Breakfast team."

Alison joins Prime in 2005.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
