Matt will be joining Breakfast as their new weather presenter, following the departure of Sam Wallace to host The Hits’ Auckland morning radio show alongside Toni Street.
He will be joining Hilary Barry, Jack Tame and the rest of the Breakfast team.
The news marks ten years exactly since Matt – who has spent the last year travelling and working in Europe - first appeared on Breakfast.
“When I was approached about coming back to work on Breakfast, it was a no-brainer. I had to say yes. It’s pretty amazing to come full circle and return home to be part of the programme’s presenting team,” he said in a statement.
“It really can't be called a job, working on Breakfast. It'll be a genuine joy to turn up to work each morning and help put together a show New Zealanders can be proud of. It's a brilliant team, and I'm so excited to get back and get stuck in. Plus, someone needs to keep Jack in line,” he added.
TVNZ’s Head of News and Current Affairs, John Gillespie says, “Matt’s obviously well known to our team and to our audience so we’re confident he’ll hit the ground running. We’re looking forward to welcoming him back."
