Hilary Barry quits TV3 amid rumours she’s heading to TVNZ

One of TV3’s biggest and most popular stars, newsreader Hilary Barry, has quit the network.

Her departure is the second high-profile casualty at TV3 in the past year after John Campbell left in May when his show Campbell Live was dumped.

The Weekend Herald can reveal Ms Barry, who has been with the company since 1993, resigned on Thursday. There is speculation she is headed to rival broadcaster TVNZ. …

She’s better off out of the TV3 train wreck (dribble). All the best to Hilary Barry in whatever she chooses next.

    She was doing morning and night. With Ap-Paul-ling Henry. No wonder she wants a break. Might be a family or health issue in the mix somewhere, too. She needs more time for something else if it isn’t a new job.

    How on earth has this made “breaking news” and front page news in the Herald.

    She reads the news, or more accurately gossip, scandal and click-bait shit masquerading as news and otherwise giggles at Paul Henry, that’s it, nothing life changing.

    Perhaps if the story was around Mediaworks, the National Party influenced, taxpayer funded broadcaster of choice and their evolving slow motion train wreck management strategy then just maybe, but an auto-cue reader. Seriously?

    Good call by Barry though, leave the sinking/stinking ship and keep your integrity intact.

      I think Barry lost that some time back as Keith aptly pointed out. Like TV 3, TVNZ is just another mouthpiece for National, so nothing changes should she go there.

    Yay, Mark Weldon!. The greatest management genius of our time.

    • leftie 5.1

      Ahh yes… the odious Mark Weldon, the close personal friend of John key.

    • whateva next? 5.2

      Or he is he a master tactician at dumbing down the nation, successfully transitioning out the thoughtful personalities who have integrity, and creating a new “normal” in media???? Thank goodness for RNZ.

    the ships deserting the sinking rat

    • save NZ 6.1

      Yep, their most precious cargo John Campbell, left a while ago. All down hill for TV3 since then.

      Natz supporters mostly watch TV1 so not sure what TV3 were thinking, ideology and cronyism to Key more important than ratings, obviously.

    She’s hardly a brilliant journalist – just a good news reader – she giggled at Paul Henry for a year until the sexist racist moron said he liked her breasts – that was probably something to do with it – good one her for finishing that gig with that idiot

    It’s obvious that the thought of working with serial racist and hate-speech merchant, Paul Henry was too much for Hilary Barry to stomach.

    Equally it’s obvious that working for John Key’s mate, current defendant in court, and all round Tory scum Mark Weldon, was too much for Hilary Barry to stomach.

    I really hope she sticks it to these people when she is able to regain her voice.
