Māori Development Minister Te Ururoa Flavell has congratulated Māori Television on the formal opening of its new headquarters in East Tamaki.
“These are exciting times for Māori Television. The new building will provide an environment for kaimahi to create, innovate and share our stories.
“It will also build on the legacy of those who worked so hard to establish Māori Television and its work to revitalise te reo Māori”.
It was a double celebration for Māori Television who also celebrated with the launch of its broadcasts in High Definition
“Māori Television operates in a rapidly changing media environment and the move to HD, funded with $10.6 million in last year’s Budget, is part of its multi-platform strategy which aims to attract and expand its audiences.”
The broadcaster began operating out of the new premises earlier this month after being based in Newmarket since its launch in 2004.
The Waiata Māori Music Awards will celebrate 10 years this month and will be marked with three posthumous awards:
Ngāi te Rangi singer Bunny Walters will receive the Music Industry award for his string of hits performed through the 1970's.
Tomairangi Paki will be honoured with the Keeper of Tradition award for her contribution to kapa haka for over four decades and Wiremu Te Tau Huata will be acknowledged with the Music Composer's Award.
Many other Māori artists will represent the industry at the awards including Wellington local group Grove Roots who are up for four nominations this year.
Grove Roots founder Noel Woods says it was great to be recognised along side other musicians who were passionate about promoting te reo.
Grove Roots are finalists in the Best Māori Traditional album, Best Māori Urban Roots/Reggae Album, Best Song by a Māori Artist and Best Māori Songwriter categories.
The Waiata Māori Music Awards will be held on Friday 15 September in Hastings.
