Greg Boyed leaving Seven Sharp

Seven Sharp presenters Greg Boyed, Alison Mau and Jesse Mulligan

Greg Boyed is leaving TVNZ's evening show Seven Sharp, the state broadcaster says.

Mr Boyed has been a presenter on the programme since it started earlier this year.

TVNZ's Head of News and Current Affairs John Gillespie said Boyed would leave the show at the end of this week.

"Greg has enjoyed his time on Seven Sharp but feels most at home working on Tonight, which is where he will return from the week commencing Monday, September 9," Gillespie said.

"He wants to acknowledge the great team of people he was worked with on the show, in particular, his two colleagues Ali Mau and Jesse Mulligan.

"I respect Greg's decision and understand that this move is the right fit for him."

Seven Sharp will be sticking with a three presenter format and the search for a replacement will start soon, TVNZ says.

Greg is far better and more respected fronting the news than the antics and comedy routine of Seven Sharp where he looked the odd one out.

I watched Greg fronting on Q and A back when Paul Holmes took ill. He's first class as an interviewer. Be a great replacement for John Campbell if TV3 ever want their show to rate.

Great choice on Greg's part he's far more suited as a serious news presenter. Well groomed, good tone and can see him eventually fronting main evening news.
