Carly Flynn

Carly Flynn (nee Kirkwood) was born in Taupo and lived as a teenager in Rarotonga.She holds a Bachelor of MediArts majoring in journalism from Waikato Polytech (now WINTEC) and a Diploma in Journalism from the Journalists Training Organisation.

Carly joined TV3 in 2003 as a reporter for 3 News. She became the Nightline newsreader in 2005, and held that position until October 2008, when she moved to the opposite end of the day, as co-anchor for Sunrise.

When Sunrise came to an end late 2010, Carly worked as a radio announcer for The Breeze. She took time out to have her second child with cameraman Dave Flynn, who she married in 2006.

Carly says she is excited to be part of the show that fights for Kiwi consumers’ rights.

“I’ve always been a fan of the way that Target champions the underdog, and I look forward to showcasing some of the best and worst examples of Kiwi products and businesses,” she says.

Carly’s work experience prior to joining MediaWorks includes being a production manager on You’re A Star in Ireland, a producer on Newstalk 106 in Ireland, and holding the post of news editor at Counties Manukau Radio.

She lists her interests as travelling, reading, swimming, diving, movies and camping, and one of her goals is to work in a third world country.
