Jennie Forder (nee Goodwin)

When second channel TV-2 went on air in June 1975, Jennie Goodwin was regular newsreader on the Two at Seven show. In doing so, she became the first woman in New Zealand  — and the Commonwealth — to handle newsreading on a prime-time, nationwide bulletin. Goodwin first moved from radio into television in the mid 60s, initially working as a continuity announcer introducing each evening’s programmes.

When I started as a continuity announcer on AKTV-2 in about 1966 it was black and white, and you wore false eyelashes and really dark red lipstick. It was real theatre make-up.
