Mary Lambie - A Remarkable Journey in Journalism and Media


Mary Lambie has enjoyed a rich and varied career in the media landscape. Following her completion of the AUT Journalism course in 1987, she embarked on a journey that included roles as a journalist, radio host, and newsreader across New Zealand. Her international experience took her to Japan in 1991, where she served as Radio New Zealand's Tokyo foreign correspondent for three years.


Upon returning to New Zealand, Mary expanded her horizons, hosting the BBC World Service Business program and contributing to television documentaries. Notably, she became the host of TV One's "Good Morning" show in 1997, a role she held with distinction. In addition to her broadcasting prowess, Mary authored the book "101 Quick Tips for Surviving your Kids" and explored Iran on television's "Intrepid Journeys."


In 2023, Mary ventured into reality television as part of the "Celebrity Treasure Island" cast. She also played a pivotal role as a media consultant for New Zealand's Prime Minister Elect, Christopher Luxon. Mary Lambie's accomplished career reflects her adaptability and enduring impact in the world of media.


Mary is looking forward to coming to Wānaka and sharing her story.

Introducing Scope Media 

Championing meaningful connections

Scope Media is an award-winning communications and digital consultancy bringing people and ideas together through authentic storytelling, media relationships and digital know-how.

Scope Media sent out its first press release way back in 2013. In those early days, our goal was to share stories, but over the years, this purpose has grown to become multi-channelled and multi-faceted.

We’re now in the business of amplifying stories, making messages stick and growing the vital connections that communities and businesses need to flourish.

Years of prior experience working in national media has helped us understand, anticipate, and develop the ‘story’. Our finely tuned marketing communications experience has helped brands – from small SMEs to large international companies – increase sales, improve stakeholder engagement, grow reputation and boost awareness.  Learn more about Scope Media here.
