I watched you on TV1 News tonight receiving your Kinghthood from the Governor General. It was a deserved grand occasion.
You have entertained me, informed me, infuriated me, exacerbated me and probably everything in between. On one occasion you even had a very public go at me on your show for a decision I helped make concerning funding for the America's Cup campaign.
But I recognise your consummate skill as a TV presenter and radio talk-back host. You helped change the face of broadcasting in New Zealand and, while you may have your detractors, no-one can take that away from you.
