Mike Rehu

Executive, Presenter

Mike Rehu began his career as a breakfast DJ. After a sidestep into presenting children’s television, he headed overseas. The trip was cut short by an invitation to return to TV, this time on the other side of the camera. After a stint in management for TVNZ in Singapore, he did 16 years running sports for ESPN and Fox. Lured back to be Māori TV's Head of Content, Rehu later moved into sports commentating and radio.

He's a disciplined performer. He's got a fun, warm sort of personality. He just had that x factor — that sparkle on camera. He can communicate directly with an individual through television. Video Dispatch producer Amanda Evans on Mike Rehu, The Listener, 20 August 1990, page 36
