It’s just been announced that John Campbell will leave TV3 and the show that he has fronted superbly for 10 years is to be axed. It will be replaced with a co-hosted current affairs show, but any expectations that it might be any good will probably need to be seen in the light of the admission that it will be part of the comedy and entertainment arm of TV3.

Mediaworks  spokesman Mark Jennings weaselled “John has decided he wants to take a break from the job and we respect his decision”.

Mediaworks’s message to viewers: We hate you, we won’t listen to you, and if you choose to watch our channels, please switch your brains off, we just want your eyeballs.

John, if you’re reading this; good on ya mate. You were as good as gets. Hope we see you again soon.

Ka kite ano.

Edit: Media commentator Phil Wallington nails the political aspects of the axing on Radio NZ.
