Published: 10:15AM Monday January 21, 2013 Source: ONE News

Pippa Wetzell is set to return to our screens, as co-host on consumer affairs show Fair Go.

Wetzell will join TVNZ's primetime schedule in the new role, replacing Ali Mau, who has moved to new current affairs programme Seven Sharp.

Best known for her role on TV ONE's Breakfast, Wetzell said she is "thrilled" to be joining the Fair Go team.

"Not only is it an established and successful show, but I'm looking forward to upholding the standards and responsibilities that Fair Go has become known for," she said.

Wetzell will now sit alongside co-host Gordon Harcourt on the Fair Go desk, as they work to get to the bottom of consumer scams and dirty deals.

Fair Go has also gained a new executive producer, Max Adams, who has worked as a senior producer at TVNZ for 20 years. He was the first executive producer for politics show, Sunday.

"I am excited to be producing such an iconic New Zealand show," he said.

"I am looking forward to the new season, and to working with Pippa and the whole team, which is looking good."

TVNZ Current Affairs Editor Briar McCormack said the involvement of Wetzell and Adams will ensure the strength of the show continues into 2013.

"Fair Go has been part of New Zealanders' lives for 36 years, and everyone who works on the show is very passionate about sticking up for the little guy," she said.

"Pippa is a fantastic addition to our team and a perfect fit for the show.

"In combination with Max as the new executive producer, and a few other new faces, Fair Go is set for another successful year."

Fair Go returns to TV ONE in February.
