Sean Plunket

Presenter, Reporter

After a 14-year run co-presenting Morning Report, Sean Plunket left Radio New Zealand in 2010, to take on morning shifts for Newstalk ZB, then Radio Live. Television jobs dominate his early career: apart from a “dream job” reporting for Fair Go — where a painter once threw a ladder at him — Plunket has both worked on Holmes, and been senior political reporter for TV3. Mid-2014 saw the debut of Prime Television current affairs show Prime Time with Sean Plunket. After a brief spell doing public relations for Gareth Morgan's Opportunities Party, Plunket joined the Broadcasting Standards Authority in October 2017. 

The only two jobs I ever dreamed of doing were Fair Go and Morning Report. That opportunity didn't come along very often, so I put my hat in the ring. Sean Plunket, in an interview with the Herald on Sunday, 28 September 2008
