CAMERON BENNETT TO LEAVE TVNZ


Respected Sunday presenter and long-time foreign correspondent, Cameron Bennett, is leaving TVNZ after 24 years.

He will continue on air until the end of August.

Cameron's departure arises from format changes to the Sunday programme, which provided him with a natural opening to assess his personal priorities.

Cameron says he and TVNZ are parting on excellent terms:  "I feel I have given a lot to TVNZ, and, in turn, the company has invested a lot in me."

"I count it as a real privilege to have reported on some of the most defining news events and news-makers of the last quarter-century.  I've been fortunate - it's been a rich, incredibly rewarding career."

TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs, Anthony Flannery, says the company warmly acknowledges Cameron's years of exemplary service as a senior journalist and foreign correspondent.

"Over the years, he has come to embody the classic virtues of a real newsman, and he has been a much-respected and well-liked colleague to us all. He leaves us with every good wish."
