Nigel Latta and John Campbell are teaming up
Nigel Latta will team up with journalist John Campbell for a show that examines what New Zealand will look like in 20 years.
The pair will host live panel show What Next?, which examines what New Zealanders want for the country’s future, and whether we’re on track to achieve those goals.
The show promises to use research from University of Auckland’s psychology department, as well as the results of a soon-to-bereleased survey.
Latta and Campbell will be joined by a panel of Kiwis who are passionate about preparing for what’s ahead.
They include social entrepreneur Derek Handley, McGuinness Institute chief executive Wendy McGuinness, indigenous social entrepreneur Shay Wright, tech innovator Frances Valintine, and Tu Maia cofounder Sacha McMeeking.
The show will be broadcast live on multiple platforms over five consecutive nights, and viewers will be able to ask the hosts and panellists questions and communicate their views online.
The show marks Campbell’s return to a major free-to-air television network after his current affairs show, Campbell Live, was controversially axed in 2015.
This time he’s working for the competition, with What Next? set to air on TVNZ 1 and TVNZ’s web site.
