Plunket leaving


Auckland: MediaWorks has confirmed presenter Sean Plunket is leaving the company.

Plunket was the afternoon host on MediaWorks talk radio station Magic Talk.

MediaWorks had come under scrutiny in recent weeks following racist comments by former Auckland mayor and politician John Banks on the station.

The company was also fined $3000 by the Broadcasti­ng Standards Authority in December after finding Plunket had promoted negative Maori stereotype­s when interviewi­ng an iwi leader on Te WhanauaApa­nui’s Covid19 roadblocks. — RNZ
