Fair Go also has a new executive producer, Max Adams.

TVNZ Editor Current Affairs Briar McCormack said the involvement of Wetzell and Adams would ensure "the strength" of Fair Go continued.

"Fair Go has been part of New Zealanders' lives for 36 years, and everyone who works on the show is very passionate about sticking up for the little guy," she said.

"Pippa is a fantastic addition to our team and a perfect fit for the show. In combination with Max as the new Executive Producer, and a few other new faces, Fair Go is set for another successful year."
