Phillip Leishman

The name Phillip Leishman is synonymous with sports broadcasting in New Zealand. Over a four decade long career he presented sports news and major events from the Olympics to rugby tests, plus an internationally-syndicated golf show. He also branched out into popular quiz shows and entertainment specials (notably Wheel of Fortune). Leishman died on 25 February 2013, after a battle with cancer. He was 61. 

I like to think I've lived the history of New Zealand television.
