The news is out. The media show I've been fronting for more than six years, let go this year by TV3, is coming back next year -- to Maori Television.
There will be 20 episodes next year of what will now be known as Media Matters. There will be a Maori co-host (we're talking to people) and, as you would expect, attention paid to Maori media and Maori in the media, but it's absolutely a show for everyone interested in media issues.
I haven't been directly part of the many discussions that have led to this happy news, but I would like to acknowledge the support and goodwill of Maori Television's news and current affairs division -- a crew we've always had great respect for.
I can't tell you any more for the time being, but we will be on in a good timeslot.
I'm stoked. And looking forward to spending the summer improving my ease and skills with the reo.
See you next year!
