Farewelling John Campbell

We'll sure miss John Campbell! To say farewell, we take a look at some of the marvellous broadcaster's top moments.

After 10 years of crusades, campaigns and championing the underdog, Campbell Live has aired for the final time, and its marvellous, much-loved figurehead John Campbell has departed TV3. From Pike River to the Canterbury earthquakes, with campaigns for school lunches, political grillings and helping a boy get braces in between – there was never a cause too big or too small for the Wellington-born broadcaster and his team.
John, now married to wife Emma and dad to daughter Alex and son James, first started at TV3 as a junior reporter in 1991, and began reading the news alongside Carol Hirschfeld in 1998, before taking the helm of Campbell Live in 2005.
To farewell John in style, we’ve searched our archives to bring you the best shots of John Campbell through the years. You’ll be missed, John!
