Journalist Samantha Hayes will join Duncan Garner as host of current affairs show 3rd Degree when it returns to TV3, the channel's owner, MediaWorks, has announced.

Feedback from viewers on the in-depth current affairs programme had been very positive on having dual presenters, Mark Jennings, director of news and current affairs, said.

"Samantha has considerable presenting experience and this will be valuable as we continue to evolve a programme that broke some of the country's biggest stories in its first year on air," Jennings said.

"Guyon Espiner and Duncan Garner brought contrasting styles and different points of view to the programme and Samantha Hayes will undoubtedly bring her own unique style too."

Espiner has left the show to co-host Radio New Zealand's Morning Report.

Hayes is a journalist for 3rd Degree and backup anchor for Firstline and has worked in TV3's news and current affairs division since 2006.
