Sacha McNeil has been a journalist for 20 years as a broadcast reporter and newsreader. Working across both TVNZ and TV3 she has presented and reported for 3News, Nightline, Firstline, Newshub, Breakfast, OneNews and Tonight. Extensive experience within news has seen her fronting years’ worth of high profile breaking news stories from the studio, as well as covering national events such as general elections, Anzac Days and Waitangi days live from the field.
