AUCKLAND, Today: Stuff has signed content sharing agreements with Chinese-NZ media outlet Skykiwi and Māori Television, enabling more and better online content for the Chinese and Maori communities.
“These new partnerships enable Stuff to broaden its content offering while giving Māori Television and Skykiwi a chance to share their content with New Zealand’s largest digital audience,” said Stuff editor-in-chief Patrick Crewdson.
“Stuff’s scale allows us to act as a mirror of the country,” he said. “These partnerships with Māori TV and Skykiwi help us better reflect the true diversity of New Zealand.”
Both agreements expand on previous content sharing relationships, introducing significant emphasis on collaboration. Stuff and Skykiwi will now meet regularly to discuss content, and will also work together on larger, long-term editorial projects for the Chinese-NZ community.
