Grant Kereama is a New Zealand radio host, most recently[when?] on The Polly and Grant Show on the Hits network. Kereama co-hosted his morning show with his ex-wife Pauline (Polly) Gillespie. This show was cancelled at the end of 2016.

During the early 1990s Kereama was a lottery host. In 2005 it was revealed that Kereama was the donor of a kidney for former All Black, Jonah Lomu.[1][2]

In 2009 Kereama became one of the voices of the Jigsaw (Family Services) Extra Ordinary Dads campaign, inspiring dads to take the time to play with, listen to and encourage their kids, and to create strong positive family relationships.

On Tuesday 15 April 2014 a media statement was released informing that from 28 April Grant and his ex-wife will be launching a new radio station called The Hits, which is to replace the current Classic hits station. Traditionally Classic Hits has had locally produced programming but will be moving to a nationwide breakfast broadcast.
