TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs, Heaton Dyer, today announced that Stephen Rowe will be joining TVNZ as the Wellington Bureau Editor.

Mr Rowe comes to TVNZ after nearly seven years in a number of senior positions with Reuters Television in London. In addition to this post, he has also worked for Reuters in Tokyo, Sky Television in Britain, as well as the Ten Network and the Sydney Morning Herald in Australia.

Prior to working overseas, Mr Rowe also worked as Senior Press Secretary to former Prime Minister, Jim Bolger.

He was also in charge of Reuters' field coverage of the Nato bombing of Kosovo and has worked extensively in Northern Ireland."
