Te Karere

Television, 1982–ongoing

Runniing for more than four decades, Te Karere is a daily news programme in te reo Māori. Based in the TVNZ newsroom, Te Karere covers key events and stories in the Māori world, as well as bringing a Māori perspective to the day's news. Significant for pioneering Māori news on mainstream television, it has been a platform for Māori to comment on issues and events. Founded by Derek Fox, it first went to air during Māori Language Week in 1982, before getting its own regular slot the following year. Te Karere initially ran for only four minutes, then 15; in 2009 it was expanded to a half hour.
