Christchurch-raised Guyon Espiner began working in the press gallery the day Jim Bolger left Parliament. After a decade in newspapers, he joined TVNZ in 2003, where he would do six years as the channel's political editor. Espiner crossed to TV3 in 2012, and the following year hosted current affairs show 3rd Degree, with onetime rival Duncan Garner. In April 2014 Espiner began co-hosting RNZ's Morning Report.
He's watched as tired governments have gone and as new ones have waxed, only to wane in turn and be consigned to history ... he travelled to Antarctica with the late Ed Hillary, he's been to Washington, interviewed Hillary Clinton ... been in shit fights with Winston; he's helped nail political scalps to the wall.
