Former TV3 presenter Carolyn Robinson joins Seven Sharp

The popular weekend news anchor will join Mike Hosking and Toni Street later this month.

Former Mediaworks presenter Carolyn Robinson will join Mike Hosking and Toni Street on Seven Sharp as a reporter.

Robinson will step in for current reporter Matt Chisholm while he films Survivor New Zealand.

The journalist and presenter worked at TVNZ many years ago, before moving over to TV3’s Nightline and later, 3 News as a weekend anchor along side Simon Sheperd. She also hosted the factual series What’s Really In Our Food?

Robinson left Mediaworks earlier this year around the same time as Hilary Barry and news boss Mark Jennings.

“It’s really exciting to be stepping into a role at Seven Sharp. The team there is fantastic, and I can’t wait to reunite with the show’s Executive Producer, Antony Stevens, who I worked with on 3 News for a couple of years,” Robinson said.

TVNZ’s Head of News & Current Affairs, John Gillespie said: “A great reporter, presenter and writer, Carolyn is the perfect choice for Seven Sharp. We look forward to her joining TVNZ as Matt puts his survival instincts to the test.”
