Award winning journalist Miriama Kamo grew up in South Brighton, Christchurch. Of Ngai Tahu and Ngati Mutunga descent from her father and Scottish /Irish from her mother she inherited a love of story-telling which steered her towards journalism. This saw her enrol in the three-year journalism course at the NZ Broadcasting School in Christchurch. She landed her first job in television, at 21 years old, as a reporter and presenter on Get Real, a science and discovery show for children.
A year later she moved to Wellington and worked as a reporter on a TV3 arts show called Sunday, hosted by Mike Hosking. After one year Sunday switched to TV One, and became backch@t hosted by Bill Ralston. Miriama stayed at backch@t for almost three years .
Miri then moved to Sydney to take a break from television. After disastrous experiences working as a receptionist at an advertising agency, a trainee typesetter and a waitress she finally found a more suitable job at an inner city art gallery. On returning home she was contacted by TVNZ and offered a presenter role on Sunday, Television New Zealand’s flagship current affairs programme where she stayed for 3 years. During that time she won the prestigious Best Current Affairs Reporter gong at the Qantas Media Awards in 2005.
Miriama then spent six years fronting TV2 current affairs show 20/20 until she returned to TVNZ’s Sunday as a correspondent and anchor. She also presents current affairs programme Marae and TVOne’s lifestyle programme, Kiwi Living.
As an MC Miriama’s natural warmth, professionalism and poise shines through allowing guests and organisers to relax and enjoy any event.

“Miriama twice co-hosted the World Class New Zealand Awards for us. The awards recognise significant achievements by an individual in business, science and academia and they attract the elite of New Zealand. We always knew that Miri would be the ultimate professional and she didn’t disappoint. What really impressed us though, was her passion for the Awards and the winners. She did her homework and obviously knew more about the winners than we provided in our briefings. Miriama’s style is relaxed yet she is always in control of the stage. I highly recommend her as an MC and presenter.”
