John Campbell

Journalist, Presenter

English literature graduate and former share trader John Campbell joined TV3 as a reporter in 1989. In 1997 he began fronting his own current affairs segment on 3 News. John Hawkesby's resignation in 1998 saw Campbell drafted in to read the 6pm news with Carol Hirschfeld. In 2005 he moved to 7pm for Campbell Live, and hosted it for a decade. After returning to Radio New Zealand, he joined TVNZ in 2018.

He’s an original. Totally enhanced by frenetic enthusiasms and eccentricities. But above all, he’s genuine. He never says ‘that was good’, he always says ‘how was that?' Radio producer Catherine Saunders in Metro, July 2000, page 96
