Former Nightline Host Bill Ralston Fills in for Paul Henry

Former Nightline host Bill Ralston returns to TV3 as a guest host of The Paul Henry Show.

Ralston will fill in for Paul Henry on Wednesday 2 July as part of a diverse line up of hosts during Henry’s two-week break.

The other presenters include Radio Live host Ali Mau, The Edge breakfast host Mike Puru and former Christchurch mayor Sir Bob Parker.

The Paul Henry Show executive producer Fiona MacMillan says: “We're taking this approach because we want to try something different with the show at every opportunity.

“It's going to be a lot of fun to bring together a group of broadcasters and former broadcasters from very diverse backgrounds. Each of them will bring a different flavour to the show, and our "topical not typical" approach is well and truly preserved while Paul is away.”

Schedule of guest hosts:

Monday 30 June – Rebecca Wright

Tuesday 1 July – Ali Mau

Wednesday 2 July – Bill Ralston

Thursday 3 July – Genevieve Westcott

Friday 4 July– Mike Puru

Monday 7 July – Janet Wilson

Tuesday 8 July – Bob Parker

Wednesday 9 July– Mary Lambie

Thursday 10 July – David Farrier

Friday 11 July – Rebecca Wright

- ends -

The Paul Henry Show screens weeknights at 10.30pm on TV3
