Ryan Bridge to host Newstalk ZB’s Early Edition

2024 was meant to see Ryan Bridge hosting his own NZ TV current affairs program but, after Newshub‘s closure saw it cancelled, Bridge has now been announced as the new presenter of the Early Edition show on New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME)‘s Newstalk ZB.

Bridge was previously co-host on TV3’s AM Show for two and a half years. The move to radio will see Bridge cover the latest international and domestic news developments, sport, entertainment and business from 5am to 6am weekdays.

Jason Winstanley, NZME Chief Audio Officer, said:

“Ryan is a popular, talented broadcaster with significant radio experience, extensive knowledge of local and global issues and a special ability to engage and connect with audiences. I know our listeners will enjoy waking up to Ryan sharing the latest news and providing analysis of the stories making headlines each weekday morning, and we can’t wait to have him on board.”

Bridge commences the new role on Monday July 8.
