Pauline "Polly" Gillespie is a New Zealand radio host on More FM. She co-hosts on The Polly and Grant Show Saturday mornings from 6-10am and the All-Day Breakfast show on rova with her ex-husband, Grant Kereama.[1]

Gillespie and Kereama hosted the ZM breakfast show from 1991 to 2014, making them the longest serving breakfast duo in New Zealand. The show rated well in Wellington, and enjoyed success across New Zealand.

On 28 April, Gillespie and her ex-husband launched a new radio station called The Hits, which replaced the Classic Hits station.[2] Traditionally Classic Hits had locally produced breakfast programming, but moved to a nationwide breakfast broadcast in the rebrand.

Gillespie also writes an agony aunt column for Woman's Day New Zealand.

David Hartnell described Gillespie's dress style as "like a working man's Madonna,"[3] and in 2008, Gillespie was listed as one of the worst-dressed New Zealanders.[4][5]
