The show will replace Campbell Live, which was broadcast for the last time on 29 May after 10 years on air.

MediaWorks head of news Mark Jennings said du Plessis-Allan and Garner were two of New Zealand's top journalists and would make a "formidable" team.

"Story will focus on the issues that are relevant and important to all New Zealanders. We will be looking for the best stories, the most interesting stories and the stories New Zealanders are talking about," he said.

MediaWorks chief executive Mark Weldon said du Plessis-Allan and Garner represented a "major investment by MediaWorks in the future of current affairs leadership in New Zealand".
