Presenter, Producer

National MP Melissa Lee first made her name presenting award-winning television series Asia Downunder. The show was launched in 1994 and Lee worked on 600 episodes, many as producer. In 2008 she became New Zealand's first Korean MP, and was later named Parliamentary Private Secretary for Ethnic Communities.

It's indeed a great privilege to be able to tell Asian stories on New Zealand television. Melissa Lee
