8:40 Hemana Waaka – Broadcasting in Te Reo
Pioneering Maori broadcaster Hemana Waaka heads Maori TV’s Te Reo World Cup commentary team. He talks to Chris about his career in broadcasting, writing the Maori sports dictionary, and how he is hanging up his boots to return to his whanau – and take a new career path – in Whakatane.
Mediawatch looks at how one woeful Wallaby copped a mauling from our media, which were not as gracious in victory as the Australians were dignified in defeat. Mediawatch also asks visiting journalists what they make of our media during the Rugby World Cup – and what picture of New Zealand is being painted overseas. Also, who raised widely-reported fears that a cannibal killer was on the loose on a 'south sea island'?
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.
