Father And Son Co-Present Māori Television Show

Father And Son Co-Present Māori Television Show

Father and son duo Chris and Tūpoutahi Winitana are joining forces to co-host Māori Television’s new current affairs show, Paepae, which starts Sunday March 29 at 6.30pm.

Paepae (the orator’s bench on a marae) series replaces Te Tepu, which Chris Winitana has presented for the past three years.

The weekly series will feature some of the country’s best speakers of te reo Māori, who will discuss their views on local, national and international issues.

Producer Hone Edwards says it is exciting to see Chris Winitana in a new light alongside his son Tūpoutahi as the voice of youth.

“At the last census there were 127,600 Māori aged 15-24 years – Tūpoutahi is the face of this rising youth demographic and brings a younger perspective to the paepae”

Tūpoutahi and his siblings were home-schooled in a total immersion Māori language environment at Te Kura o Ahorangi, in Tūrangi, Ngāti Tūwharetoa.

He first appeared on television presenting the Māori language kids programme Tikitiki, when he was 10. Now aged 26, he is busy running his own Māori consultation company, Rau Ltd and producing music.

Tūpoutahi will also present a new Māori Television series called Kairākau, which will screen later this year.

Tune into Paepae every Sunday at 6.30pm to get an insightful and diverse perspective on the latest issues.
