Another crushing blow for the media industry today, with the confirmation that long running consumer affairs show Fair Go is being axed alongside current affairs programme Sunday, News at Midday and News Tonight.

Around 68 staff were officially given the news this afternoon with TVNZ citing cost saving.

It's understood employees were given a break down of what their shows cost, compared to the money they generated.

Employment lawyer Barbara Buckett speaks to Lisa Owen.
