5:26 pm on 4 June 2015

Māori Television's Mihingarangi Forbes has quit her role as the presenter of current affairs show Native Affairs.

She announced her resignation on Twitter this afternoon and thanked her team and everyone who had shared their stories.

Ms Forbes has been fronting the award-winning programme for more than two years after her predecessor, Julian Wilcox, who formerly worked at the channel, decided to take a management role off-camera.

The Ngāti Maniapoto and Ngāti Paoa descendent is likely to host the programme on Monday night and hasn't yet indicated where she will be heading to next.
