The Times-Age has appointed Grant Harding as its new editor.

Harding will replace Seamus Boyer, who is leaving the company after two years as editor.

Currently based in Hawke’s Bay, Harding has extensive chief reporter, deputy editor and acting editor experience, having filled those roles during five years at Hawke’s Bay Today.

Previously, he was editor of Rugby News and NZ Rugby World magazines, and was a producer for Sky Sport for seven years.

Harding said he was excited by the opportunity.

“I have family links to Wairarapa dating back to the early 1900s, and since I was told I had the job, my mother has unearthed photos of my grandfather in a Masterton brass band and a Wairarapa junior representative rugby team.

“While I am familiar with much of what the province brings to the national landscape, I will be putting a fresh pair of eyes on the local scene.”

Outside work, Harding likes to keep fit, and has completed three Ironman New Zealand triathlons.

He will start at the Times-Age on August 13.

Times-Age publisher Andrew Denholm said he was delighted with the appointment.

“Grant is an experienced journalist. I have no doubt he will pick up on the excellent work Seamus has done”.

Boyer is leaving to take up a position with Stuff in Wellington.

  1. WAIRARAPA FED FARMERS & RIVERS
    Currently over 90% of New Zealand rivers, lakes & wetlands are so polluted that unless drastic action is taken New Zealand will soon raise its status from a third-world country to a tenth!
    It is therefore essential that the GWRC, which has a mandate to stop pollution of our rivers and wetlands, receives widespread support from every farmer and land owner.
    My wife & I have spent most of our lives working for the environment and its wildlife and large numbers of overseas pay us a visit, together with hundreds of New Zealanders.
    For example; 98 staff members from the Ministry of Primary Industries arrived in December, from Wellington – for the “guide-tour” – which covers: viewing over 7,000 native trees planted since 1990, wetland creation, predator control stations (managed by the GWRC and over 7,000 predators have been eliminate) and the historic Taumata Lagoon.
