Karen Rutherford

Karen is the Newshub Chief of Staff and is based in Auckland. She has spent the past 20 years chasing stories as a radio reporter, TV journalist and presenter. A Qantas Media Award winner, her recent career highlights include exposing the self-proclaimed Roastbusters gang which resulted in nationwide marches and government intervention, and going undercover to see Witch Doctors turfed out of the country. Interviewing Bill Clinton and the Royals over the years has been rewarding, but it's sitting down with "real people" sharing the story behind the story, that Karen considers the biggest privilege of her role.
