The New Zealand Herald has more than 200 journalists across the country, bringing you the stories that matter on our website and app, in print and across our social media platforms.
I'm Madison Reidy, Senior Multimedia Business Journalist and host of Markets with Madison at the New Zealand Herald. I joined the Herald in 2022 after working as a business journalist across several digital mastheads and broadcast programmes, with most of my eight-year career spent in television. I most recently worked for New Zealand's largest investment bank and advisory group, Jarden, alongside equity and economic research analysts to share their insights with a broader investor audience. According to my parents, I asked too many questions. I grew up engrossed in news since deciding to become a journalist at age 3. I can thank them for my interest in business too, as their roles in the corporate world were common dinner-table conversation. From reporting on the housing crisis, to listed company earnings and fraud cases, my most memorable moment is opening the 6pm news to tell the nation we had entered a recession during the Covid-19 crisis. The weight of that statement and its impact on many New Zealander's financial stability is not lost on me today. Everything in life comes back to finance and I'm committed to sharing the stories of business owners, investors, executives and society through video. I am also passionate about increasing accessibility to financial and economic research and advice, which is what my twice-weekly show Markets with Madison is aiming to achieve. I encourage you to watch, listen and engage with our business content, and to share your ideas with me. I look forward to hearing from you.
