12:00am - 06:00am
CA Paakiwaha

10.00am – 12.00pm

Paakiwaha is an exciting weekly two hour current affairs program hosted by Willie Jackson and featuring topical national kaupapa from a Māori perspective.
Since it began in 2002, Paakiwaha has made a key contribution to Waatea's vision of providing a Māori current affairs format in English, a forum that provides a uniquely Māori  perspective on issues affecting primarily Māori, but ultimately all New Zealanders.
The aim has always been to provide opportunities for listeners to have a better understanding of kaupapa that may not get fair treatment on mainstream media, while allowing Māori and non-Māori  to engage in critical debates on those issues.
