A generation of Kiwi kids grew up watching Jason Gunn on television. Starting in children’s TV, Gunn hosted a run of classic kids shows, often working alongside a puppet named Thingee. He went on to host primetime shows like Dancing with the Stars and Wheel of Fortune. In this ScreenTalk Short, he talks about learning to be a good presenter, working with Thingee and aiming wide on The Son of a Gunn Show, his experiences on Celebrity Treasure Island and Dancing with the Stars — and how he wasn't meant to host game shows.
