    There will be a Maori co-host (we’re talking to people)

    Prominent Maori broadcaster JT is apparently looking for work.

  • Russell Brown,

    I'm actually really excited about working to improve my language skills and get comfortable in the korero. It's a challenge in the best sense of the word.

    That's great news Russell. Public broadcasting FTW. And MTS has a great web site for delivering your online content :-)

    Great news Russell, I hope it'll be available online so that us offshore kiwis can still tune in.

    Great news. And further evidence that MTS has broadened its own brief and became NZ's default public service broadcaster.

    Bloody brilliant news! There is a book or two called Media Matters, so you are in good company. Hope there will be opportunities to bring vanloads of students.

    No problems there Geoff. We are all looking forward to being back in harness and rearing to go in an election year where the media will be playing their part in the democratic process. .

    in an election year

    I’m especially stoked about that. Can imagine Media Matters and Native Affairs chasing similar stories sometimes.

  • Gareth Swain,

    Thumbs up to that! I add my voice to the others who live overseas and hope the programme will be available online.

    I visited NZ earlier this year for the first time in ages, and I was struck by how vapid the TV content was... with one exception: Maori TV. It was much better than all the others.
