Ryan Bridge New AM Show Host

Ryan Bridge has been appointed to succeed Duncan Garner as the host of Three’s The AM Show.

Here’s the media release:


Newshub is delighted to announce Ryan Bridge as the new host of The AM Show, broadcast on Three weekdays from 6-9am.

Long-time stand-in presenter for the show, Ryan is a former Newshub reporter and RadioLIVE political reporter.  He has most recently been the host of Magic Talk’s drive show and has also filled in as a guest presenter on Newshub Nation.

Ryan says: “I am really excited to be the new host of The AM Show. There’s nothing quite like morning television – it’s live, largely unscripted and allows you to connect with everyday Kiwis as they get ready to take on the day.

“It’s a huge privilege to be joining Discovery and I look forward to working with the entire team to deliver compelling television, while tackling the issues that matter. And of course, having a whole lot of fun while we’re at it.”

Newshub’s Director of News, Sarah Bristow, says: “Ryan is a truly exciting broadcaster who is perfectly suited to a dynamic morning show.

“He flawlessly pivots from conducting hard-hitting interviews to sharing engaging and entertaining anecdotes, driven by his innate curiosity and genuine desire to connect with his audiences.

“Television is his passion and I am excited to welcome him back to Newshub and Three.”

Ryan Bridge has been hosting the show following the recent announcement of Duncan Garner’s resignation. He will be joined by Amanda Gillies and Mark Richardson.

The AM Show broadcasts weekdays on Three and streams live on ThreeNow from 6am – 9am covering the latest news and current affairs and engaging Kiwis in a national conversation about issues affecting them.

  1. I think Three needs sci-fi and fantasy shows, there’s too many reality shows ?

  2. I think Three needs to retire LOL

    It’s almost as if Discovery are trying to tell us something… I expect we’ll see MediaWorks start their own breakfast show on Magic Talk radio
