Duncan Garner gets the AM Show
MediaWorks is delighted to announce Duncan Garner as the new host of its 6-9AM weekday news programme The
Duncan will front the brand new morning show on TV3 & RadioLIVE, building on the success of the Paul Henry
cross-platform format but with a new approach, new set and new sound.
The AM Show will retain some familiar attributes, but with a number of changes and additions.
MediaWorks’ Chief News Officer Hal Crawford said Duncan’s years of experience across talkback radio, the press
gallery and current affairs made him the perfect fit for the job.
“Duncan will continue to deliver the fast-paced, informative and entertaining start to the morning that New
Zealanders have grown to love with Paul Henry. He has immense reporting and presenting experience, and we
are looking forward to him continuing the success of a format that has transformed the breakfast market.”
Host Duncan Garner said: “Content is king and that’s what the team and I are going to deliver – the best news, the
best interviews, the best information you need to start your day. I also want to make sure everyone has a bloody
good laugh too.
“Paul is a brilliant broadcaster who has changed the game in the mornings – I’m looking forward to building on that.
Our new show will be warm, seriously smart, irreverent and funny. I can’t wait to rip into it.”
Other members of The AM Show team, and a replacement host on RadioLIVE’s Drive show, will be announced in
the near future.
The AM Show will launch in early 2017.
