From ONE News:
Meteorologist Daniel Corbett has been announced as the latest member of the ONE News Weather team.
Corbett made a name for himself in New Zealand during his time with MetService where he became known for his quirky approach to weather forecasting.
TVNZ's Head of News and Current Affairs John Gillespie says Corbett will be a huge asset to the weather team.
"He's worked all round the world and has a genuine passion for weather, and an enthusiasm that translates through the screen," he said.
Corbett is excited to return to broadcasting, saying: "I'm really looking forward to getting back into it, and I can't wait to join the amazing ONE News team with Jim Hickey and Karen Olsen."
"Doing weather in New Zealand is different to anywhere else in the world. The country sits in between the tropics and Antarctica, surrounded by ocean which means we get these huge contrasts - bringing intense, dramatic weather. It doesn't come in small doses - it really throws everything at us including the kitchen sink!"
Viewers will see Daniel Corbett on ONE News Weather from Monday.
There's an additional snippet of news in this article from Auckland Today:
Corbett would be "part of the mix" with Hickey and Olsen, TVNZ publicist Sara Cairney said.
He would make about four appearances a week on a mixture of weekday, weekend and possibly other news shows.

This piece in the NZH doesn't add much apart from a great photo I don't recall seeing before and:
A TVNZ spokeswoman said Corbett would be sharing shifts with Olsen and Hickey.
No one's hours were due to be cut back "in the near future," she said.
