Stacey Morrison (née Daniels): versatile broadcaster...

Interview – 2011

Stacey Morrison (née Daniels) began her TV career on What Now?, presenting a weekly cooking segment while she was still at high school. After losing a role at Ice TV to Petra Bagust, she joined current affairs series Marae, which helped her discover her Māori heritage. She then moved to Mai Time, where she found herself at the forefront of a change in the way Māori culture was portrayed on screen. Morrison has moved between presenting and behind the scenes work, on everything from Guess Who's Coming to Dinner to SportsCafe. She is also a radio broadcaster.

In this ScreenTalk interview from 2011, Morrison talks about:

  • How theatresports at school got her her first gig
  • How Peter Hayden helped correct her Māori pronunciation
  • Why Mai Time came along at the right time
  • Why she finds the buzz of live TV so addictive
  • How she can't believe she gets paid for making It's in the Bag
