After almost 20 years at RNZ Simon Morton has decided to hang up his mics and take a break from RNZ and do his own thing for a while (including sourdough baking and surfing, believe it or not!).

There will be more news on the plans to replace it coming out soon, but in the meantime here's a personal message from This Way Up's longtime host.
