MediaWork’s Newshub Decision 2020 will be Three’s coverage of the upcoming election night, hosted by Tova O’Brien, Duncan Garner and Patrick Gower.
These three will front the coverage for Three, and bring with them 35 combined years of political reporting. Tova O’Brien says after the year that has been 2020, there is expected to be a lot of edge-of-your-seat moments.
“Jacinda vs Judith, the political fate of Winston, minor parties teetering on extinction, the rise of ACT, Covid-19 rearing its head and beating at our borders, policy debate for unprecedented times, too many battleground electorates and issues to count.”
Newshub National Correspondent Patrick Gower will host the Newshub Decision 2020 Leaders Debate between Jacinda Ardern and Judith Collins in front of a live audience at 7:30PM on Wednesday, September 30th.
Patrick Gower says: “Our leaders debate will be for everybody. It is about the future of New Zealand and who gets to lead us there. I will be standing in the middle on behalf of the ordinary Kiwi.”
