TVNZ looks to cut between 70 and 90 jobs

The state-owned television network had gone into consultation with its employees "relating to proposed changes across the business."

Kenrick said the proposed changes could see 70 to 90 roles cut within the business.

"TVNZ's revenue dropped 30 percent during the nationwide lockdown," Kenrick said.

He said the changes were necessary to protect the "financial sustainability" of the network which continued to be affected by Covid-19's hit on the advertising market.
