Broadcaster Aziz Al Sa’afin is off to Oz!

The beloved broadcaster has landed one of the most coveted news roles

Beloved broadcaster Aziz Al Sa’afin has landed one of TVNZ’s most coveted news roles and will soon move to Sydney to start as Australian correspondent for 1 News, taking over from Andrew Macfarlane.

“There are moments in life when you feel everything you have done has led you to that very moment and that is precisely how I feel right now,” a delighted Aziz tells Woman’s Day.

Since starting in showbiz on Sticky TV, the proud LBGT+ ambassador worked as a journalist for The Paul Henry Show, The Project and The AM Show, before joining 1 News last year.

Of his new overseas gig, he admits, “I’m equal parts excited and s**t-scared, but with the blessings of my mum and [partner] Jake, I’m ready for the challenge!”
