Fine-tuning of te Reo on Maori TV

7:12 pm on 13 May 2009

Maori Television is taking recommendations that it improve the quality of te Reo spoken positively, rather than focusing on them as a criticism.

Chief executive Jim Mather says the Maori Television Service is already working on the recommendations in a report into the effectiveness of the Maori Television Services Act.

He told Waatea News it was essentially a matter of fine-tuning te Reo to improve quality.

Mr Mathers said the style of language used should fit the type of programme being broadcast.
