Pippa Wetzell will replace Ali Mau as co-host of Fair Go.

Mau is to front Close Up replacement show Seven Sharp along with Greg Boyed and comedian Jesse Mulligan.

Wetzell, who will host alongside Gordon Harcourt, has previously worked on Breakfast and has recently been reading One News at 4.30pm.

"I'm thrilled to be joining the Fair Go team," Wetzell said.

"Not only is it an established and successful show, but I'm looking forward to upholding the standards and responsibilities that Fair Go has become known for."

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."

Fair Go returns to TV ONE in February.
