Political and current affairs talk show Q+A will shift from the morning to prime time TV, Television New Zealand has confirmed.
From Sunday July 29 the show, fronted by broadcaster Corin Dann, will move from its morning spot to 9.30pm.
TVNZ head of news and current affairs John Gillespie said the move would bring in a bigger audience and complemented channel 1's other local shows such as Sunday and Hyundai Country Calendar.
"New Zealand audiences are deeply engaged with politics," Gillespie said.
