Radio New Zealand has announced the appointment of Wallace Chapman as the new host for Sunday Morning on Radio New Zealand National, replacing Chris Laidlaw who presents his final programme tomorrow.
An experienced and multi-faceted broadcaster, Wallace Chapman has previously been a breakfast host at Auckland’s 95bFM and KiwiFM and a presenter on talk station Radio Live.
Radio New Zealand Networks Presentation Manager, John Howson, says the appointment provides an opportunity to review the current programme format and to explore options for new content.
Chris Laidlaw has presented Sunday Morning on Radio New Zealand National for more than a decade. He announced his decision to retire following recent local body elections when he was elected to both the Greater Wellington Regional Council and the Capital and Coast District Health Board.
Sunday Morning on Radio New Zealand National has a live listening audience of more than 200,000 people.
