Members of the media respond to Newshub closure

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 29 February 2024

After 35 years of 6 o'clock bulletins, TV3's Newshub is likely to shutdown operations after financial losses became too big to sustain.

Up to 300 staff will lose their jobs by the end of June if the shock proposal goes ahead.

The axing of news offerings comes alongside an uncertain future for locally produced shows aired on the channel.

Māori news broadcaster Mihingarangi Forbes, media commentator Bill Ralston and former head of TV3 news and Newsroom co-founder Mark Jennings spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
