Lynn Freeman has spent the best part of 30 years working at Radio New Zealand (RNZ), starting as an intern before being appointed chief reporter of the Dunedin News Room – just in time to helm the Aramoana shooting tragedy. After a stint in regional TV, Lynn returned to RNZ, this time working out of the Wellington office. She moved from executive producer for Nine to Noon to senior producer for Morning Report, before being appointed to her current role: presenter and co-producer of Standing Room Only. Lynn is also Kathryn Ryan’s fill-in on Nine to Noon, and hosts summer programme The Weekend, as well as having produced award-winning features and documentaries.
Outside of RNZ, Lynn has been a theatre critic for Capital Times, judge of the annual Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards, and a kitten fosterer.
