Weekly media commentary show Media Take focuses on the week's news and new media developments. Frontman Russell Brown and a team of panellists analyse how certain issues are presented. In front of a live studio audience they cover traditional outlets (TV, radio and newspapers) and also look at the internet, advertising, PR and new technology. The show began life as Media7 on digital channel TVNZ 7; it shifted networks  to TV3 after TVNZ 7's 2012 shut down, and was reborn on Māori Television in 2014 for four seasons as Media Take.
