Craig is a political reporter for Radio New Zealand and a rap god.

Craig McCulloch is a political reporter for Radio New Zealand. He graduated from the New Zealand Broadcasting School and began work at RNZ’s Christchurch office in 2010. He traded in his sweatpants for skinny jeans later that year and set up camp in the capital.

Sometimes described as a young George Clooney, Craig spends his spare time composing Facebook updates and memorising hip hop lyrics. He knows ‘Rap God’ by heart and is constantly baffled as to why that doesn’t generate a greater level of awe and respect.
