Nine hosts to fill in while Paul Henry holidays

MediaWorks has selected a raft of broadcasters to host The Paul Henry Show in his absence. Mr Henry is abroad for the next two weeks, starting today (Monday). 

Notably, Former Nightline host Bill Ralston will guest host The Paul Henry Show. The well-known former broadcaster now regularly comments on the media and has a PR consultancy, Deadline.

Former Christchurch mayor and TVNZ presenter Sir Bob Parker will also fill in for Mr Henry during the host’s two week break.

Former Seven Sharp presenter Ali Mau, The Edge breakfast host Mike Puru and former TVNZ presenter Genevieve Westcott.

The Paul Henry Show executive producer Fiona MacMillan says MediaWorks is taking this approach because we want to try something different with the show at every opportunity.

“Each of them will bring a different flavour to the show, and our "topical not typical" approach is well and truly preserved while Paul is away.” 

Other guest hosts include Rebecca Wright, Janet Wilson, Mary Lambie and David Farrier.

Yeah Right....More like Paul didnt want anyone else to have a chance to get their feet under the table. Bring on Bill Ralston as soon as possible I say!!

Sadly hes up to old personal insecurity tricks

Yet to see any sensation story breaking journalist

Waste of a prime time slot

Sad old shock jock clearly suffering performance anxiety

Paul -you are great- have a nice holiday.

Or could it be Mediaworks are lining up Mr Henry as a replacement for Campbell and they need to fill this spot first?
