Anika Moa says she's gunning for Paul Henry and Mike Hosking after getting funding approved for her very own talk show.

The Kiwi musician has been granted $641,549 of NZ On Air funding to make 10 half-hour episodes of All Talk With Anika Moa, to screen on Maori Television.

The funding body described the show as "an edgy, entertaining new talk show" that will include featured guests and "take on the week's trending topics".

Moa has experience hosting her own show, after a hugely popular chat show on the Herald, where she hilariously interviewed celebrities like Stan Walker and Art Green.

Moa quickly took to Twitter to celebrate, joking All Talk would be "like a horror train wreck but with Maori words".

She warned Hosking and Henry to "look out".



Other Maori Television shows to received funding include Artefact ($1.14m), Game of Bros season two ($348,392), Ngarara ($92,636) and the Anzac Auckland Dawn Service ($77,450).
