CAPTION: Henry in an ad for Snickers.
New management at MediaWorks are facing a challenge. – how to negotiate with the broadcasters’ s biggest star. There is a lot of confusion and spin over the future of the Paul Henry breakfast show and Story. And they suggest that the the network is still dysfunctional. The Weekend Herald reported on Saturday Henry would be moving to prime time and Story Duncan Garner would take over the Breakfast show. On Sunday he rejected the assertion in Stuff.
“I seriously just don’t give a s*** about any of this. I’m not moving to another show.”I’m not moving to 7 o’clock because I have no interest in doing that, and for a number of years have not been interested in doing that.
On Monday’s programme he lambasted The Herald for their coverage. A MediaWorks source said that it had been leaked from people at MediaWorks who are admirers of Henry. I am told the suggestions in the Herald piece reflect discussions about Henry’s future. But the information was not made by Henry, the source said.
