Marae Investigates - Junior Reporter
Tüwharetoa / Tainui
Kayne made his mark as the first host of TVNZ's Kidzone on Freeview's TVNZ 6 in 2007. Although the channel didn't survive restructuring, Kayne and Kidzone became a must-see for many New Zealand children and was picked up by paid-per-view television.
Armed with a Bachelor of Performing and Screen Arts, Kayne was a contributing writer on Kidzone sparking a new passion for journalism.
In 2010 he began training as a journalist at AUT University while working for One News as an assignments desk coordinator and junior reporter. He then went on to gain experience in print journalism, writing stories for The Dominion Post and Waikato Times before receiving his postgraduate Diploma in Journalism in 2012.
Kayne joined the Marae Investigates team in February 2013 and is
passionate about telling Maori stories. He is also continuing to
study te reo rangatira.
