TV3 has appointed Richard Sutherland to the new role of Deputy Director of News and Current Affairs.
Director of News and Current Affairs, Mark Jennings, says Richard is one of the most capable and respected news managers in the country.
"Richard is what we call a journalist's journalist," he said. "He is extremely well regarded for his news judgement and management style, and will add further strength to what is already a top-notch team."
Richard Sutherland is currently Director of Coverage for TVNZ's News and Current Affairs division. Prior to TVNZ, he was the Managing Editor for SKY News NZ for three years, and his extensive experience in radio newsgathering includes five years as News Editor at NewstalkZB.
Richard will take up his new role late April.
