Paul Holmes

Paul Holmes, KCNZM, helped change the face of New Zealand broadcasting. In 1989 the sometime actor and longtime radio host began presenting primetime news and magazine show Holmes in spectacular style, when guest Dennis Connor walked out of an interview. He balanced Holmes and a popular radio slot for 15 years, followed by a stint with Prime TV and current affairs show Q+A. Holmes passed away on 1 February, 2013. 

Broadcasting taught me everyone is intelligent. Everyone is good at something, everyone can express in the right environment and anyone can be eloquent if approached correctly.
