John Stewart TVNZ obituary, death

Chapel Bar & Bistro has confirmed the death of John Stewart, a regular at the establishment who passed away yesterday after a fall. He was 77 years old.

If you worked in television news in the last couple decades, it’s likely that you came across John’s work. His journalistic career began in Wellington in 1971, about the time he completed the journalism degree at the then Wellington Polytechnic Institute.

He went to Auckland shortly after, where he worked for TVNZ until 1983, when he and his family relocated to Melbourne, Australia. After that, he spent part of his time in the heady 1980s working for (I believe) Channel 9, before returning to New Zealand in the early 1990s and taking up a position at TVNZ for around 15 years.

His subsequent employment included many years with the country television network, as well as some consultancy and training for Maori television. He was a giant of a man and a good fellow, and he will be sorely missed by all of us.
