Broadcast on

Waatea 603AM

Saturday 12.00 - 12.30pm

Sunday 12.00 - 12.30pm

Both shows repeated 5.00pm – 6.00pm On Sunday

Saturday 5th October: All iwi talk about investing in their youth, and Waikato Tainui has long been at the forefront, dating back to the efforts of leaders like Te Puea Herangi and Robert Te Kotahi Mahuta.

This week more than 100 young people have been at Turangawaewae for the Rangatahi Summit, which is held every two years.
It included cultural activities, works, debates about how to move forward while preserving traditional values, and presentations from tribal leaders. This Saturday on Kia Korero Mai Eru Morgan talks to organiser Huirama Matatahi about the aims of the summit and what was achieved.

Saturday 6th October: Auckland Maori public health roopu Hapai Te Hauora Tapui Ltd has been at the forefront of the campaign to lower the number of gambling machines in the city's low income communities.

That effort has been undermined by Government's deal to allow Sky City to increase its pokie numbers in exchange for building a convention centre.

Auckland mayor Len Brown says he's in favour of the council's sinking lid policy for gambling venues - but he's also in favour of the Sky City deal that takes away the council's room to move.

Tunuiarangi McLean from Hapai Te Hauora Tapui says that's something mayor Brown needs to square with the voter. On Kia Korero Mai he talks with Eru Morgan about the damage gambling is doing to Maori and Pacific whanau.

Korero Mai Ki Ahau a half hour features programme every Saturday and Sunday from noon, which takes an in – depth look at issues affecting te ao Maori. Totally in te reo Maori brought to you by Waatea News in association with Te Mangai Paho.

Ma Waatea ma te reo hei whakamarama

Both shows will be available as podcast on our website: waateanews.com

Joseph Cederwall: The End Of ‘Objectivity’ In Journalism

... and the dawn of something much better?
2019 looks like it might well be another really bad, terrible, not so good year for the traditional journalism model globally. Already in January three leading US digital outlets—BuzzFeed, the Huffington Post, and Vice announced layoffs that have left many accomplished journalists unemployed. Consolidation of journalism looks set to continue unabated as larger (sharky) media conglomerates swallow up smaller players globally. We also appear to be witnessing the death throes of the concept of ‘objective’ truth in journalism. However, perhaps that is not at all as bad as it sounds, and we are just finally waking up to the reality that it never really existed in the first place... More>>


Environment: Government To End Tenure Review

“Tenure review has resulted in parcels of land being added to the conservation estate, but it has also resulted in more intensive farming and subdivision on the 353,000 ha of land which has been freeholded. This contributed to major landscape change and loss of habitat for native plants and animals,” said Eugenie Sage. More>>
