One of New Zealand’s most recognisable faces, Mike McRoberts graces our TV screens weekday evenings bringing us the news. The former 60 Minutes current affairs host whose reporting career spans more than 20 years, is perhaps best known for his journalism work in some of the worlds most dangerous places.
Mike has covered some of the world’s biggest natural disasters in China, Haiti, Pakistan and South East Asia, and closer to home - the Christchurch earthquake and terror attacks. Mike has won numerous journalism awards, including TV Journalist of the Year in 2006 and News Presenter of the Year in 2017. A keen sports follower, Mike has also presented and reported from several Rugby World Cups and Olympic Games.
Join us for an afternoon with Mike as he shares insight into his career, giving us an idea of what happened in some of those sticky situations before the camera started rolling - what it takes to get the real story.
Followed by afternoon tea this event is not to be missed!

Residents at Ryman villages are not retiring from life, they're finding a new way to live. They're rediscovering passions and pastimes that were lost when responsibilities took over, they're learning new skills, and they're embracing connections with like-minded people. The banter, laughter and camaraderie are what make every day special.
