Between 1993 and 2014, the show contained a mix of locally produced and American content.[1] The show now presents stories largely produced by its American counterpart, with a local presenter providing context at the beginning.[2] The show uses the same graphics and theme music as the American version.[3]

From 1993 until 2003, the show was broadcast on Three, and was hosted by Louise Wallace.[1] The format was then picked up by TVNZ, and was hosted on TVNZ 2 first by Miriama Kamo until 2011, then by Sonya Wilson until 2014.[1] In its latest iteration, the show is presented by Carolyn Robinson, and has been broadcast on TVNZ 1 since 2016. Producer Susie Nordqvist is the show's back-up presenter.[4]
