Native Affairs front man Julian Wilcox says it's time to step away from the cameras.

The broadcaster has been appointed head of news and current affairs at Māori Television.

He replaces Te Anga Nathan, who has decided to seek other opportunities.

Mr Wilcox says he's had a great run but it's time for new challenges.

“People can stay too long in front of the camera; it’s that kind of allure and elixir of people knowing who you are and all that kind of thing. I never really got into for that. I just wanted to get into it because I thought I could help out in some way, shape or form and disseminate as much information as possible. I’ve been doing it for 9 years at Māori Television and 10 years at Waatea, I will always be committed to Māori radio and always committed to Māori Television but someone else has got to have a go”

Julian Wilcox will also give up his spot hosting Tawera, Radio Waatea's daily hour of current affairs in Te Reo Māori.

Housing flip flop
WILLIE JACKSON: It wasn’t the best 7 days for John Key who flip flopped on housing at the start of the week and was escorted into the weekend with front page news that his lawyer has been mysteriously caught up in the Panama foreign trust debacle.
Here's my response to your opinion piece on Ture Whenua.
CLAUDETTE HAUITI: Why amend? It’s pretty simple really: there are over 27,000 blocks of Māori land under Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 Act, that’s 1.4 million hectares or about five percent of the total land in Aotearoa. Owners, are shackled by antiquated policy preventing them from developing their lands hence the amendment to the act.
All Blacks on top again
WILLIE JACKSON: The All Blacks took another step in advancing rugby as a global game when they won the best team award at the Laureus awards last week. These awards are the Academy awards of world sport and our team beat some of the greatest sports outfits in the world.
