When Duncan Garner began co-presenting TV3's 3rd Degree in 2013, he already had 17 years in television behind him — much of it spent in the press gallery. Garner began at TVNZ in the mid 90s as a political reporter, after studying Communications at Auckland University of Technology. Following time as a reporter on Holmes, he joined TV3 in 2003. Four years later he became the channel's political editor, and was judged Qantas TV Journalist of the Year. After a stint on primetime current affairs slot Story, it was announced that Garner would be leading TV3's new morning show in 2017, taking over from Paul Henry.
He says there's pretty much no difference between him on the telly and off, that what you see is what you get, and that's about right. Writer Michele Hewitson on Duncan Garner, The NZ Herald, 3 April 2010
