Seven Sharp Returns for 2014

Seven Sharp returns to TV ONE this Monday 27 January, with new hosts Mike Hosking and Toni Streetjoining Jesse Mulligan to tell compelling Kiwi stories with a fresh perspective, five nights a week.

Mike Hosking is one of New Zealand’s most experienced broadcasters, and will continue hosting his radio show on Newstalk ZB five mornings a week while hosting Seven Sharp each evening. Hosking says, “I’ll be finding out what it's like to work all the hours god sends!” He adds, “I am really looking forward to making some fun TV this year with a great team.”

Making the move from early morning on Breakfast into prime time, Toni Street says of her new role, “The team has lots of fresh ideas for the 2014 show, I can’t wait to start. I’ve always admired Mike as a broadcaster, he’s a fantastic interviewer. We’ve both had experience fronting the Breakfast format which should lend itself nicely to the conversational nature of Seven Sharp. And Jesse is really clever, so I’m hoping some of his humour will rub off on me.”

Returning host Jesse Mulligan is looking forward to seeing what his new colleagues bring to the show; “It’s a great privilege to be working with Toni and Mike in 2014. Toni is a natural broadcaster – warm, smart and fun. And Mike is a legend, pure and simple – I’m looking forward to learning from him and, of course, taking the mickey out of him.”

Seven Sharp, every weeknight at 7.00pm on TV ONE from Monday 27 January.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
