Stuff announces all-star line up of national correspondents

MEDIA RELEASE - Stuff announces all-star line up of national correspondents

Wednesday 29 November 2017

Stuff has appointed an elite team of National Correspondents.

The appointments follow a rigorous three-month recruitment process, with this rare opportunity attracting dozens of high-calibre candidates from New Zealand, the US, the UK and South Africa.

The six-person team features a vibrant mix of award-winning journalism experience and the fresh voices of emerging stars.

One of the countrys best sports reporters, Dana Johannsen, has joined from the NZ Herald, while the very experienced Carmen Parahi comes fresh from a producing role for Native Affairs.

Charlie Mitchell and Katie Kenny have been promoted from internal roles, while Steve Kilgallon is moving from a newsroom leadership role back into reporting. Michelle Duff is signing up full-time after a period of freelancing.

Fairfax NZ editorial director Mark Stevens said the team would aim high: “We've promised these journalists the time and support to produce inventive, impactful reporting on a national scale.”

The National Correspondents will have a broad remit, but their priority areas include health, the environment and climate change, social issues, Māori affairs, sport, and the impact of technological changes on our way of life.

Stuff editor Patrick Crewdson said: “Were excited about the wide range of creative ideas these journalists have already pitched and the opportunity to realise them through Stuffs full multimedia suite.”

Like the award-winning Stuff Circuit team, these journalists will have the freedom and support to dive deeply into stories of significance.

Stuff is the largest New Zealand-based website, with a unique monthly audience of more than 2.2 million (source: Nielsen Online Ratings, September 2017).
