COVID-19 hit the media industry hard, but among the hardest hit was Bauer New Zealand.

It abruptly closed its doors just days into the country's level 4 lockdown, taking around three hundred jobs with it and iconic titles like The Listener, New Zealand Woman's Weekly, Metro and Woman's Day.

Some of those titles have since been re-born and so have the careers of their former writers, editors and salespeople.

Newshub's Wilhelmina Shrimpton speaks to two of them about their pivots.

Kelly Bertand who has launched her own content website called Capsule, and Mike Sanders who's moved into commercial real estate.
