NZ On Air has announced that the media affairs programme Media 7 will be moving to TV3 from the soon-to-shut down TVNZ 7.
Media 3, as the show will now be called, will move to TV3 on Saturday mornings in August. The programme premiered on the commercial-free TVNZ 7 network, which is ceasing broadcast on June 30.
"This is a validation of what we've done these past five years," host Russell Brown wrote on his Hard News blog.
Media 7 examines issues in New Zealand print, television, radio and other media each week. NZ One Air provides funding support for the show.
