Local Focus A Tātau Kōrero: Walter ‘The Wiz’ Walsh

In this series, we wanted to find out who are our people in Te Tairāwhiti 250 years after the arrival of Lieutenant James Cook and his crew on the Endeavour, and what are the things that make up our community including insights, reflections, views and opinions.​
World-famous in Tūranganui-a-Kiwa, Walter ‘The Wiz’ Walsh is something of a household name. His many local platforms have included emceeing at events, acting in shows and the airwaves. He hosts his own show on Tūranga FM called The Night Train. He was recently recognised for his services to the community with a QSM in the Queen's Birthday Honours list. The Wiz sits down and shares with us his passion for everything he does.
