David Jamieson honed his journalism skills over a decade on TV One's prime time news bulletin, before jetting off to London in 1998. Jamieson went on to produce and report IT stories for channel BBC World, and travel the globe promoting the commercial arm of BBC TV. He returned to New Zealand in 2003 with his young family. Jamieson reported for One News and Holmes, everywhere from Los Angeles to Antarctica; in 2004 he moved into public relations. Since 2010 he has been living in Sydney, Australia. The keen Cessna pilot gained his Master of Business Administration from Auckland University in 2010.
I feel immensely privileged to have played a very small part in New Zealand and the United Kingdom's TV industries. Working in TV news gives you extraordinary access to do things that normally wouldn't be possible. Personal highlights — the Oscars, Antarctica, working as a small cog in the immense machine that is BBC News, and flying in fast jets with both the RNZAF and RAF. Many happy memories and great stories. David Jamieson
