TVNZ confirms shuttering of Fair Go, Midday and Tonight

From Nights, 10:17 pm on 9 April 2024

The tranche of job cuts at TVNZ reached a milestone today with confirmation that programmes Fair GoMidday and Tonight would all be cut from mid-May.

In early March the broadcaster announced it was proposing to disestablish 68 roles across the organisation in the wake of financial difficulties.

Final decisions on cuts to Sunday and Re:News are yet to come, and there is a suggestion that Fair Go may continue in some form.
