Ric Salizzo

Presenter, Producer

After time as a sports reporter for both radio and TVNZ, Ric Salizzo spent time as media liaison officer for the All Blacks, and formed his own production company on the back of light-hearted rugby tour documentaries The Good, the Bad and the Rugby, and Blood, Sweat and Touring. In 1996 he created and co-hosted the long-running sports entertainment show SportsCafe.

I know some TV producers who wait to see the ratings before they decide if they've made a good show or not, but I'm not like that. You know in the pit of your stomach if it's good or not. Ric Salizzo, in a July 2008 NZ Herald interview
