Jeremy Wells and Hilary Barry to present Seven Sharp

Presenter and radio-host, Jeremy Wells will join Hilary Barry as Seven Sharp’s newest co-host when the programme returns to TVNZ 1 at 7pm on 5 February.

Hilary’s addition to the presenting line-up was announced earlier this month.

While Jeremy and Hilary will bring their own presenting style to Seven Sharp, the programme will continue to tackle subjects close to New Zealander’s hearts – telling powerful personal stories and introducing uniquely New Zealand characters.

Jeremy Wells says, “It’s nice to be a part of a grown up, credible, ratings juggernaut rather than the low rating, late night schedule fillers I’m usually involved in. I’ll be leaning heavily on Hilary’s intelligence, professionalism and pronunciation to get me through.”

Hilary Barry says, “The Seven Sharp team is one of the best in the business and I can’t wait to be part of the family and who better to share the desk with than someone as hilarious and talented as Jeremy Wells. I think we’re going to have a lot of fun.”

Alongside the new hosts, Seven Sharp’s 2018 season will feature a revamped set, updated music and refreshed graphics.

Seven Sharp is New Zealand’s most watched weeknight news and current affairs programme, with an average audience of 449,949.*
