Maori Language Week Awards

It's quite interesting how a Pacific Island radio station wins an award in a category that really should have been won by an iwi station.

The Maori Language Week Awards were held last night in Wellington, and among two other iwi finalists (Mai FM and Te Hiku FM) in the Radio Category, Niu FM won it.

The press release makes light of TVNZ scooping a chunk of awards, yet this enlightening and odd news of the pioneering PI radio network made my morning.
He ra tino ataahua tenei - Its a great day!
