The Weekend Collective
3PM - 6PM weekends
The Weekend Collective on Newstalk ZB is an intelligent and fun take on the life you live and what you love.
Who’s at the helm?
One’s a self-confessed conservative, the other a walking encyclopedia.
With years of TV and print journalism behind him, a news stint in New York, three published novels, two toddlers and a wife nearly half his age – Tim Wilson is always up with the play.
Tim Roxborogh has spent many years in the music radio game, and is arguably New Zealand’s leading expert on cricket and the BeeGees!
Joined by a range of special expert guests throughout the afternoon, The Weekend Collective will cover off the issues of the week, politics, parenting, finance, wellness and property.
Tim and Tim are perfect company every weekend from 3pm on Newstalk ZB.
