Broadcaster Tony Veitch's marriage has ended.

In a joint statement with his former wife Lisa Bryan, Veitch said today: "We confirm that we have separated. We continue to respect each other and remain friends. We have no further comment."

The pair issued the statement following media inquiries.

The Newstalk ZB and Radio Sport host married Bryan in January 2015 at Mangere's Kelliher Estate on Puketutu Island in front of their closest friends and family members.

Bryan is a qualified property valuer.

Reports at the time said the wedding was an elegant ceremony presided over by marriage celebrant Kay Gregory, a former television presenter and one of Veitch's longtime friends in broadcasting.

A cocktail party followed with newsreader Eric Young playing MC. Guests included friends from the world of sport and media.
