Funding the airways
Te Māngai Pāho provides funding to 21 Māori radio stations across Aotearoa. These stations are broadcast on frequencies reserved for the promotion of Māori language and culture. Most have been running for several decades and have a loyal, regular audience.
At this stage, Te Māngai Pāho does not have funding available for additional iwi radio stations, however there is contestable funding available to Māori radio to supplement core funding and diversify their operations.
