Kerre McIvor

Kerre McIvor

Master of Ceremonies

Kerre hosts a nightly talkback show on 1ZB and has her own Kerre’s Café radio show on a Sunday morning. Kerre is very funny and down to earth, and is an excellent, entertaining speaker, debater and MC.

Kerre has firmly established herself as one of New Zealand’s top MCs and after-dinner speakers. She is able to bring professionalism and humour to any event and knows how to ensure that the balance is always right. She is no stranger to television, either: she has appeared in Intrepid Journeys on TV1, in which she went to India/Nepal and Cambodia. She has appeared on Fair Go (presenter, not culprit), Heartland, Ready Steady Cook, Dream Jobs and Together Again, and she has hosted a number of high-impact documentaries.

On the debating scene, Kerre is dynamite, cutting up the opposition with her rapier-like wit and opinions on all things. On the corporate circuit, Kerre is a wonderful MC who can keep audiences very much on their toes, but can also bring the dignity that special occasions demand.

Kerre started her media career in 1982 as a journalist with Radio New Zealand, spending three years working throughout the provinces. She was a popular co-presenter of the Heartland Series with Gary McCormick and TV3’s Destination Planet Earth.
