New Wednesday Night Timeslot for ‘Media3’

Media3 is back for 2013 with a new Wednesday night timeslot, launching February 20 at 11pm on TV3, repeated on Saturdays at 10.30am.

Hosted by Russell Brown and produced by Phil Wallington, Media3 is a lively, intelligent discussion about media matters with the people who produce media in New Zealand - and the people who find themselves the subject of media stories.

Russell Brown says today’s media landscape means the show couldn’t be more relevant.

“This is a year of change for both TV current affairs and the news media in general,” he says.

“It seems inevitable, for example, that both the major newspaper chains will move to a ‘paywall’ model for access – indeed, Herald editor Shayne Currie first confirmed that plan on Media3 in 2012. It’s also the year that analogue TV broadcasts end. There is plenty for us to get out teeth into."

“The new timeslot, adjacent to the news, is a vindication of what we’ve been doing. It puts us in the midst of the media week – and being on at night will also give us some more flexibility around the content of the show. Things might get lively!"

Media3 is also supported by NZ On Air.

Media3 returns to TV3, 11pm Wednesday 20 February.
