Jude Dobson became a familiar television presence in the 1990’s presenting a run of lifestyle shows, and then her own five night a week series. After beginning on quiz show Sale of the Century, she went on to helm almost 1000 episodes of 5.30 with Jude and its follow-up. In 2002 she set up production companies Homegrown Television and Raising Children Media to make accessible, useful video content for parents.
Dobson’s ‘Family Matters’ column has appeared in The NZ Herald; she has also written an advice column in The New Zealand Woman’s Weekly and takes on varied contract writing gigs. Aside from her first love of taking good content from idea to reality, she also creates commercial and charitable projects, including event managing school fundraisers.
