Budget boost helps Maori Television digital strategy
Māori Television has received a $3.5 million boost from Budget 2020 for news and current affairs.
Chief executive Shane Taurima says it will enable Māori Television and iwi radio to continue to build on the work they have been doing in recent weeks to ensure communities have been up to date with news and COVID-19 related information.
He says the channel is now trying to be digital-first and story-led as well as increasing its regional presence.
