Tamati Rimene-Sproat has just kicked off his career as a journalist at Te Karere.

Having had previous experience in other media genres including print, radio and children’s television, it wasn’t until he studied Journalism at Canterbury University that he realised he wanted to pursue it as a career.

He left Christchurch with a Bachelor of Arts, Majoring in Media and Communications and Te Reo Māori and a minor in Cinema Studies.

Tamati has a passion for sport and the outdoors and is driven to seek out Māori athletes doing well on national and international stages.
