Compared to radio, live TV is terrifying

Television

Since March, I've been appearing on TV3's Seven O'Clock show every Thursday and it's the first time I've ever done TV.

I come on to talk about events that are going on around the country and, I have to admit, I find it so nerve-racking compared to presenting radio.

I have so much more respect now for presenters Martin King and Lucy Kennedy (right), and others who work on live TV shows. People really don't understand the amount of work that goes into an hour-long TV show.

I've been doing radio for a long time and it's very easy to sit behind a microphone when there's only one other person in the studio looking at you.

However, it's very different when you have to sit in front of a crew and TV cameras, thinking that there are thousands of people at home tuning in.

My nerves have started to settle down a little bit but there are still some there, which is good.

Even though radio is my priority, going on the Seven O'Clock Show gives me the chance to branch out a bit.
