During the late 80s and early 90s Lindsay Perigo anchored on a run of high profile TVNZ news and current affairs shows, where he gained a reputation as the “doyen of political interviewers” (Metro magazine). The opera-loving broadcaster abandoned television in 1993 — famously calling the medium "braindead" — and reinvented himself as an apostle of libertarian philosophical doctrines (on radio, in print and online).
The person many politicians fear but regard as New Zealand’s best interviewer. Writer Victor van Wetering, in an Evening Post profile of Lindsay Perigo, February 1989
