TVNZ Team For 2012 Games   28 May 2012

TVNZ has announced the news team it will send to London for the 2012 games.
 
Coming live from the studio location overlooking Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, ONE News anchor Simon Dallow will be involved in news programmes at both ends of the day, starting with Breakfast.  He will feature hourly throughout the broadcast, which will coincide with the end of the competing day in London.
 
Then, as the day starts in London, Dallow will be live across the evening shows here in New Zealand, on ONE News at 6, Close Up, and Tonight.   He will present stories from the athletes, as well as their families, both in the lead up to their events, and following the events themselves.
 
“It will be great to be in the thick of it in London for the 2012 games”, says Dallow.  “The games are a time when Kiwis can get together and rally behind our team as a nation, and I’m really excited to bring New Zealand news of our athletes’ triumphs.”
 
Dallow will be joined in London by Heather du Plessis-Allan, Garth Bray, Paul Hobbs, Craig Stanaway, and Irena Smith.  While news of all the major events will be covered on ONE, special attention will be placed on events in which New Zealand has strong medal hopes, such as BMX, swimming, hockey, shot put, discus, equestrian, track cycling, rowing, flat water kayaking, triathlon, and 1500m.  Smith will also be focusing on Maori and Pacific Island athletes for Marae Investigates and Tagata Pasifika.
 
“New Zealand has a number of medal hopefuls in these games, and we’ll be working around the clock to give Kiwis news of how they’re going,” says Games Bureau Manager Claire Watson.  “We’re sending over a great team of experienced and talented journalists, headed by Simon who has lived in the UK and Garth who is currently based there.  We’ll also be covering news of London’s reaction to the event, such as how the public transport is holding up, additional anti-terrorism security measures and any other relevant news stories as they arise.”
 
The games run from July 27th to August 12th.  All news coverage, including extended coverage and interviews, will also feature on www.onenews.co.nz
