Midweek Mediawatch - little light at the end of the TV news tunnel

From Mediawatch, 8:45 pm on 10 April 2024

Midweek Mediawatch  - Mediawatch's weekly catch-up with Nights. 

Colin Peacock talks to Emile Donovan about the confirmation of the closure of Newshub and more cuts confirmed at TVNZ. More than 300 journalists' jobs will go by midyear and TV news and current affairs will shrivel. Will another media company fill the Newshub void?

Also: the latest report on trust in the news media reveals a further decline - and listeners' questions about what it all means.
