Kate Hawkesby's new broadcasting role

She will be joining her husband Mike Hosking at Newstalk ZB.

Journalist Kate Hawkesby is returning to early mornings on radio station Newstalk ZB to take up a new role as host of Early Edition.
Hawkesby, who is married to broadcaster Mike Hosking, will begin the role in January next year.
She says she's thrilled to be back at Newstalk ZB permanently.
“I’ve always had a close affiliation with ZB. I’ve loved working there over the years. I can’t wait to get back on air hosting my own show.”
Early Edition is currently hosted by Rachel Smalley who earlier this month announced she was leaving ZB at the end of the year.
Hawkesby started her news career at TVNZ in 1995 reporting, presenting and news reading. More recently, Hawkesby has worked across many Newstalk ZB shows including The Mike Hosking Breakfast, Saturdays with Jack Tame and Andrew Dickens Sunday Café, and is a columnist for Woman’s Day.
