Paying for stories

John Sims made this Official Information request to Television New Zealand Limited

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for John Sims to read recent responses and update the status.

From: John Sims

Dear Television New Zealand Limited,

I want to know about whether or not TVNZ pays people to either directly feature in news and current affairs programmes, such as in a published interview, or to provide information that helped make a story at any time over the past five years.

I'd like to know how much the person was paid, when, and what the story was.

I would also like to know who the person was - but I understand if this might need to be redacted.

Yours faithfully,

John Sims
