As one of New Zealand's best-known media personalities, Kim Hill has worked on most of RNZ's flagship programmes, since she joined the broadcaster in the 1980s. From Checkpoint she moved to Morning Report, which she co-presented with Geoff Robinson in the late 1980s. In the 1990s, she hosted the Nine-to-Noon slot and since 2002, she has made Saturday Morning appointment listening for thousands of New Zealanders.
Famous for her quick wit and take-no-prisoners interview style, in 2012 she won the International Radio Personality of the Year Award from the Association for International Broadcasting.
Judges described Kim as: "an experienced and warm broadcaster exercising full control of her content whilst coaxing her guests to reveal more of themselves; really enjoyable live and sparky content that demonstrates what is great about radio and illustrates how important lightness of touch is in speech content".
For a great example of Kim Hill in her element, listen to this excerpt – the start of her 2007 interview with 81-year-old naturalist and author Sheila Natusch.
