Host Named for Stuff-Produced TV3 News Bulletins

Samantha Hayes and several other journalists from New Zealand’s Newshub will join Stuff as part of a deal between the online and print news publisher and Warner Bros. Discovery to produce 6pm news bulletins for WBD-owned terrestrial channel TV3.

In April, Warner Bros. Discover (WBD) announced a July 5 closure date for its newsroom, the Newshub website and the end of the 6pm and AM TV news bulletins on TV3. From July, Stuff will provide TV3 with one-hour weekday bulletins and half-hour weekend bulletins.

Former Newshub colleagues joining Samantha Hayes include Jenna Lynch, Laura Tupou, Ollie Ritchie, Juliet Speedy, Zane Small and Heather Keats. Claire Watson will become 6pm’s executive producer, while Steve Gore-Smith, Newshub’s senior manager of operations, will become Stuff’s director of video operations and technology.

According to Stuff publisher Sinead Boucher, the arrangement with WBD is considered an extension of Stuff’s existing digital workflows and business and not a move into TV. Aiming to differentiate itself from the current Newshub news, the Stuff-produced bulletins will draw upon the company’s 19 digital-first multi-media newsrooms.

Bulletins will initially be produced at TV3’s Flower Street facility in Eden Terrace, Auckland, with the longer term aim of production being housed at Stuff’s main premises in the future.
