Wendy Petrie (born 1971) is a New Zealand journalist and television presenter, best known for presenting 1 News at Six alongside Simon Dallow, a role she has held since 2006.
Petrie began her journalism career in radio, as a writer for Independent Radio News bulletins. She later joined TV3, where she worked variously as a reporter, news anchor and weather presenter on 3 News, as well as being a regular fill-in host on late night news programme Nightline.
Petrie moved to Canada in 2001, becoming a newsreader for the CTV News Channel and a substitute newsreader on the CTV morning programme Canada AM. During her time in Canada, she reported on the September 11 attacks for 3 News.
In late 2003, Petrie returned to New Zealand and joined TVNZ, initially as a fill-in presenter across all One News bulletins. She was on air when the Boxing Day tsunami took place, as well as during the 2005 London bombings; for this, as well as her earlier reports on the September 11 attacks, she was jokingly dubbed a 'disaster magnet' by former boss Bill Ralston.
Petrie is married to television producer Ross Peebles. They have three children, Addison, Olivia and Zach.
