Host of Christchurch's Number One Morning Radio Gets Own TV Show

Chris Lynch’s debut television show ‘Lynched’ will kick off CTV’s autumn schedule. Throughout autumn, new locally-made programmes, new talent and new graphics will update the look of Canterbury’s regional broadcaster.

‘Lynched’, a weekly current affairs show fronted by award winning journalist Chris Lynch, is leading CTV’s new Autumn programme line-up.

Chris will examine the recovery in Christchurch, ask the tough questions and hold politicians to account over their decisions.

Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee will be the show’s first guest on Monday 24th February at 8.30PM.

Christchurch native Chris Lynch says "Canterbury residents deserve their own current affairs television show, particularly given the major issues facing the rebuild and I’m excited to be given this opportunity".

CTV’s General Manager, Andrew Keeley says ‘CTV is championing the community and reflecting what’s important to local people, whether it’s political issues or social wellbeing. If it’s important to Canterbury, you’ll find it on CTV’.

Tune in Mondays at 8.30pm or catch it again 10.30pm, Tuesdays. CTV is available on Freeview|HD 40, Igloo 86, TiVo 40 and Vodafone InHome TV Channel 199 and ondemand at ctv.co.nz.
