Outspoken broadcaster and Dominion Post columnist Sean Plunket is severing ties with Newstalk ZB.

Plunket, 48, has presented Sean Plunket Mornings in Wellington since January 2011.

He succeeded long-time weekday morning host Justin du Fresne at the station.

''I'm parting with a little sadness,'' said Plunket, whose last day with the network will be December 21. ''It's been more fun than I've had anywhere else in broadcasting.''

Plunket has had a varied career that has included stints with TV3, Television New Zealand's Fair Go programme, time in the parliamentary press gallery and 14 years as Geoff Robinson's co-host of Radio New Zealand's Morning Report programme.

The Radio Network's general manager of talk programming, Dallas Gurney, said Plunket had done really well for Newstalk ZB.

''It is the No 1 commercial station in Wellington and Sean's done a particularly good job of consolidating that position after taking over from Justin du Fresne,'' Gurney said.

Do you have faith in police solving burglaries?

Yes - there's no faulting their commitment.

Mostly, but they are under-resourced.

Sort of - depends on when and where.

Not really - clearly a low priority for them.

Absolutely not.

Not sure - luckily I've never been burgled.
