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.

 
About Willie Jackson

Willie is fearless when it comes to speaking his mind and championing the rights of Māori which is reflected in his no-holds barred questioning style with the top news-makers of the day.
   
Paakiwaha is broadcast by Radio Waatea with funding from NZ On Air
