Walter Neilands


TV Host, Writer, Coach, MC

Walter Neilands is a cheerful up-beat entertainer who has been hosting and writing television for a decade now. Renowned for his high-energy creative activity on shows such as the hugely popular youth show Sticky TV and TV3’s Cadbury Dream Factory. He’s interviewed stars ranging from Guy Sebastian to a number of legendary All Blacks, as well as building a reputation for death defying stunts and ad-lib comedy. In 2019 Walter brought his joyful spirit to Dancing with the Stars, for his chosen charity Kidney Kids NZ- who he is also an ambassador for. He’s just as excellent on a live stage as he is on television! A true all-rounder who has already fostered a deep connection with NZ audiences, particularly youth, Walter will bring a special kind of energy to any project.

Walter is currently the executive producer of his own company Screengrab, an online video production company focused on marketing advertising.
