NZ Woman's Weekly

From the editor

Catherine MilfordWith the Golden Globe Awards, St James’s Palace confirming the 12-week mark in Kate’s pregnancy, and yet more of our homegrown stars joining Karl Urban and Jay Ryan in making a splash in Hollywood (take a bow, Antony Starr and Grant Bowler), there’s been no shortage of gossip for us this week. But while we’ve been delighting in our successes abroad, the overriding topic – in the office and on our website – has been one of the nation’s most popular and controversial characters, Sir Paul Holmes. His knighthood last week took place at his Hawke’s Bay home due to his ill health and the ceremony brought tears of pride to many Kiwis’ eyes – even those who have been on the other end of his “take no prisoners” wit. Sir Paul and his family have long been favourites with the Weekly’s readers, many of whom have asked us to pass on their congratulations. While it’s time for the Holmes family to spend time together in private, the love, respect and concern you have shown to Sir Paul will mean so much to a man who has dedicated his life to changing the face of news. As he said himself in 1989, “I have always known that I have a place in the history of New Zealand broadcasting. I plan to take it.”
