The Garner and du Plessis-Allan Story

Mediaworks have announced hosts for their Campbell Live replacement. Duncan Garner and Heather du Plessis-Allen, who will front a 7 pm current affairs programme called ‘Story’ on TV3

I think this will be worth checking out when it starts. I rarely watched Campbell Live but could be more interested in this combination, depending on what they cover and how they cover it.

Garner will stay on his RadioLive slot from 3-6 pm. That could work quite well with Story able to be a television follow-up on stories of the day.’

And du Plessis-Allen, rated one of their better journalists, has been nabbed from TV1.

I wonder if the Left Mob who campaigned to boycott Mediaworks after Campbell Live was scrapped will campaign for viewers to support double the front line journos on story.

The proof of Story will be in their stories, but they should at least be given a chance to prove their worth.

    Anything would be better than that ‘up-himself sanctimonious creep’ Hoskings….

  2. Jono & Ben would have been a better option. Amusing, fun and interesting rather than the spin of dud journos using multiple mediums to push their agenda. Garner would be better served going to Les Mills

    I’m not sure why they didn’t just have Garner alone. He never stops rapid fire talking so there seems little point in a duet unless the other is there just to listen.
