Paul Henry is a New Zealand morning news and talk show that aired weekdays on TV3 and was simulcast on Radio Live. It is presented by Paul Henry, with news anchor Ingrid Hipkiss and sports anchor Jim Kayes.

The initial incarnation following Henry's move from TVNZ to Mediaworks was a late night news program entitled The Paul Henry Show, which debuted on 27 January 2014 on TV3 to replace the former late night news show Nightline.[1] TV3 announced the show was going to move into the morning timeslot in late 2014 and was replaced by Newsworthy.

Paul Henry resigned from his morning post in November 2016, and last aired on 16 December 2016. It was replaced by The AM Show in February 2017, which is hosted by Duncan Garner.

The Paul Henry Show[edit]

The Paul Henry Show premiered on 27 January 2014 from 10:35 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. with Paul Henry as the show's host, and Janika ter Ellen as the news anchor, with Fiona McMillan as the show's executive producer. Labour Party leader David Cunliffe and Prime Minister John Key were both interviewed on the episode.

Henry kicked off the interview with Cunliffe by stating "I'd never vote for you", and teased Cunliffe on his misspelling of Lorde on Twitter, as Cunliffe spelt it as "Lord" when he tweeted congratulating her on her Grammy Awards.[2] Key only managed to name three native New Zealand birds in the '9 in 10' challenge, where participants have to answer a question with 9 answers in 10 seconds. Henry asked Key to name native New Zealand birds, with Key naming tui, kiwi, kakapo, and "some kind of pigeon".[3]

At the end of 2014 an announcement was made that Paul Henry will move to presenting a morning news show and as a result this marked the end for The Paul Henry Show. The final show aired on 19 December 2014. The replacement evening show called Newsworthy replaced the late night show.[4]
