More work for Maori TV producers foreseen
Updated at 6:34 am on 18 July 2012
Maori Television says its decision to air more shows might lead to more work for independent TV producers.
Since 1 July, it has boosted its te reo Maori output by broadcasting five hours of language tuition programmes during the day between 10am - 3pm.
The station has also increased content on its sister channel, Te Reo.
Chief executive Jim Mather says he has met Nga Aho Whakaari - the Maori independent sector - and told producers there could be new work on offer, particularly to makers of Maori tuition shows and 100% te reo Maori programmes.
