Wells channels his inner Hosking

Mike Hosking is one of the country's most popular broadcasters, and he's renowned for his strongly voiced opinions on Newstalk ZB and Seven Sharp, where many believe his introduction as host along with Toni Street has been the catalyst for improving ratings this year.
