The prestigious awards ceremony is being held for the first time since 2012, recognising excellence in television and honouring the special skills and unique talents of the companies and individuals who create, produce, and perform in television programmes in New Zealand. This year’s nominees date back to 2015.

Finalists are from both local programming and News and Current Affairs portfolios. Newshub is up for three different nominations in the Best News Coverage category for their coverage of the Port Hills Fires (2017), US Election Night (2016), and the Kaikoura Earthquake (2016).

Newshub’s Mike McRoberts is joined by The Project’s Kanoa Lloyd and Jesse Mulligan in the Best Presenter: News and Current Affairs category.

Dai Henwood (7 Days), Jono Pryor (Jono & Ben) and Kanoa Lloyd (The Project) are all contenders for Woman’s Day Television Personality of the Year.

Andrew Szusterman, MediaWorks Chief Content Officer said: “To receive 24 nominations across nearly all categories caps off an amazing year for Three. We pride ourselves in commissioning and producing the best local content and these awards pay testament to that. We wish all the best to our nominees.”

Hal Crawford, MediaWorks Chief News Officer added: “It is wonderful to see Newshub’s success with the Kiwi public reflected in these nominations. I’m also pleased that the incredible talent driving The Project have been recognised.”
