Mike McRoberts will be ending his news presenting career when Newshub closes in July.

According to Newshub, McRoberts will have been working on the show, formerly known at 3 News, for around 23 years.

“Ka mutu taku haerenga hei kaikawe kōrero, he haerenga i hīkoi tahi ai tatou – my journey as a news presenter is coming to an end, a journey we have walked together. Newshub’s last six o’clock bulletin… will be my last presenting the news,” McRoberts said.

“When I started in this industry as a teenager 40 years ago I could not have imagined in my wildest dreams what an incredible adventure it would be.

“I feel so privileged to have had the opportunities I have had, none more so than in the past 23 years at Newshub, 3 News and 60 Minutes.”

Reflecting on his career, McRoberts said his job has taken him to some of the biggest stories across the globe, as well as within Aotearoa.

McRoberts said he will miss the Newshub team “terribly”, and is “forever grateful” to the support of everyone involved.

He began his TV3 news reporting career in 2001, and in 2002 started presenting current affairs programme 60 Minutes.

By 2005, he was presenting the 6pm news bulletin with Hilary Barry.

In 2016, Barry left and McRoberts was then joined by Samantha Hayes.

Following the closure of Newshub on July 5, Stuff will be producing a 6pm news bulletin for Three after it reached an agreement with Warner Bros Discovery.

McRoberts’ announcement means he will not be in the running for a presenting role on the new production.
