Claire Trevett at NZ Herald reports:
Mr Taurima confirmed he had been approached about standing and was considering it, but was yet to make up his mind.
“It is a huge decision.” He is expected to raise it with his bosses at TVNZ this week.
He was promoted this year to head TVNZ’s Maori & Pacific Programming after working as a journalist and presenter on programmes including Te Karere, Marae and Q+A.
TVNZ seems to be a good recruiting pool for the Labour Party!
