“They’ve worked on rolling deadlines and under immense pressure over the past 12 months to deliver vitally important stories to New Zealand and it’s great to be able to take some time today to say thanks to them all.

“I believe they’ve delivered a world class service to our viewers and we can be very proud of their efforts”.
