Rawdon Christie hosts TV ONE's Breakfast show.

Rawdon's origins are betrayed by his accent - he's from Oxford in the UK, and originally came to New Zealand after doing a music degree at Edinburgh University in the early 1990s. He taught performing arts and coached sport at King's prep in Auckland.

He returned to the UK in 1999 to study broadcast journalism, winning the Young Broadcast Journalist of the Year award in 2000.

Rawdon started his career in journalism with the BBC, before returning to New Zealand in 2003 to take up a position as a reporter with ONE News.

He has since worked on Close Up, hosted Agenda and presented the New Zealand version of Dragon's Den on TV ONE.

Rawdon also anchored TVNZ's coverage of both major Christchurch earthquakes and was the presenter of ONE News at 4:30 and Saturday Breakfast show.

Auckland is his long-term home, where he lives with his Kiwi wife and three children. When those children allow the time, he can be found at the keyboard of a piano or watching England play cricket.
