Janet McIntyre


Brisbane-raised Janet McIntyre moved to New Zealand in 1989, and filed reports for 3 News before moving on to 60 Minutes and 20/20. Since switching to TVNZ she has been a long-time mainstay of current affairs show Sunday. She has filed stories from Kandahar to Gloriavale, and tackled interviewees ranging from Fijian dictators to Madonna. She was named TV Journalist of the Year at the 2005 Qantas TV Awards.

When you jump into a story that’s not really been trodden on, you sometimes have that sense of the great things journalism can be: you know you’re inside a secret and you’re going to be able to reveal it.
