TALENTED HOST: Tamati Coffey will host New Zealand's Got Talent.

Weatherman Tamati Coffey has been announced as the new host of New Zealand's Got Talent.

TVOne's new entertainment series is set to hit our screens in coming months after auditions are held throughout the country.

Coffey says the opportunity to host New Zealand's biggest talent show is an honour and an enormous challenge.

"A show of the size and scope of New Zealand's Got Talent is going to take the country by storm," he says.

"We'll be travelling the length and breadth of both the North and South Islands to search out some of our most talented performers, be they singers, dancers, illusionists or comics!''

Coffey says no stone will be left unturned to ensure the very best of Kiwi talent is showcased.
