Ka noho tonu a Whakaata Māori ki Tāmaki Makaurau

Kua puta te whakaritenga a te Poari o Whakaata Māori, ka noho tonu a Whakaata Māori ki Tāmaki Makaurau. 

Mō te wā roa kua āta wherawherahia e rātou ētahi tono ki Tāmaki ki Kirikiriroa, ki Rotorua hoki  mo te waahi noho o te teihana. 

Ki tā te heamana o te Poari, ki tā Georgina te Heuheu kua āta whakaarohia e rātou ko tēhea te wāahi pai mo Whakaata Māori, inā kua whakamanahia e rātou te tono kia noho tonu ki Tāmaki. 

Hei taana “The Board appreciated the number of quality proposals that came through from interested parties. Financial considerations and the ability to attract and retain staff were the key factors in the Board’s decision,” 

Hei tāna ano, “We needed to embark on a robust process and fully consider all factors to act in the best long-term interests of Māori Television. We believe this decision will be the most beneficial in supporting the organisation to realise its vision of revitalising te reo Māori”.

Ahakoa kua mana te nohonga ki Tāmaki, kare ano kia puta te whakatau ko tēhea te wāhi ki Tamaki mo te teihana. E āta tiro tonu ana te Poari ki Tāmaki ki te Tonga,  ki te hauāuru o Tāmaki ki `tōna waahi noho inaianei ki Newmarket hoki, ka oti taua rīhi hei te 2017.

Ki tā te Poari ka puta te whakaritenga whakamutunga hei te tau e tū mai nei.
