Geoff Robinson: the voice of a nation hangs up his headphones

Radio New Zealand stalwart and "probably New Zealand's best-known voice" Geoff Robinson gets his gold watch today, after almost 35 years in the host's chair of Morning Report. Today's show went back over some of the big stories he's covered in his time, like 9/11, the Rainbow Warrior and the Christchurch earthquakes, as well as some of the lighter moments, like struggling to talk into a recorder while riding a rollercoaster in Texas.
