Michael Holland is a reporter for Seven Sharp in Auckland.
He was previously with Close Up for six years after being dragged back screaming from almost six years as TVNZ's Australia Correspondent in Sydney.
Michael joined TVNZ as a producer on the Holmes show, after 10 years as a reporter on the New Zealand Herald.
Politicians and celebrities don't really grab him, but give him some ordinary, everyday New Zealanders with a tale to tell and he's a happy reporter.
He's not sure what it says about him, but he struggles to find anything else interesting to say about himself - except perhaps, that he originally hails from Pleasant Point in South Canterbury.
