Rebecca Wright

Reporter, Newsreader

Meeting journalists at music gigs planted the seed for Rebecca Wright to become a reporter. She liked their "exciting" work and the fact that they weren't stuck in an office. Since then Wright has become a well known face on both Three and TV One. The Wellingtonian began her journalism career on 3 News, before reporting for Campbell Live, The Paul Henry Show, Breakfast and 1 News. She spent three years in New York as 1 News' stateside correspondent before moving back to New Zealand in early 2020, to report for TVNZ 1's current affairs show Sunday. She was set to join Discovery's new channel Eden in March 2022, as a newsreader. 

We've had an amazing time here and an amazing adventure, and I think we will all take a little bit of New York with us. Rebecca Wright on being based in New York for three years with her family, as a TVNZ reporter, TV Guide, 27 February 2020
