Brent Edwards

This is Brent Edwards’ third stint in the press gallery, having previously worked there for the Evening Post from 1989 to 2001 and for Radio New Zealand from 2006 to 2015. In between times he was RNZ’s economics correspondent and most recently its director of news gathering. His career in journalism started at the Nelson Evening Mail when typewriters were king and smoke filled newsrooms the norm. He appreciates today’s smoke-free newsrooms but still has a lingering nostalgia for typewriters.
