Greg Boyed

Presenter, Reporter

After starting in journalism at a radio station in Tauranga, Greg Boyed did stints as a reporter and newsreader, including four years in sports. He moved into television as a business reporter on regional channel ATV, then began the first of many gigs for TVNZ; Boyed reported for Fair Go, presented current affairs talk show Q+A and the primetime news bulletin, and was both a presenter and producer on late night news show Tonight.  One of the original presenters of the five-days-a-week Seven Sharp, he left the show after seven months and returned to Tonight. Greg Boyed died on 20 August 2018.

He could be old school about his craft in the best of ways — to Greg, I think journalism was a taonga that was not to be messed with. He could be a very serious stick at times; but work with him long enough, and it would dawn on you that he had one of the sharpest senses of humour you'd ever come across. He could make you laugh like no-one else. Alison Mau remembers Greg Boyed, Stuff website, 22 August 2018
