Minister to review direction of TVNZ

Broadcasting Minister Clare Curran is to review the “future direction” of Television New Zealand. She confirmed this yesterday when announcing the allocation of $15 million for public broadcasting.

Curran released a Cabinet paper supporting the allocation, and that paper included the news about TVNZ. “Cabinet has invited me to develop an initiative for Budget 2019 that addresses the long-term needs of the public media system,” it said.

She said the initiative would include recommendations for “greater collaboration between, and efficiencies from, publicly funded media organisations, including the future direction of TVNZ.”
