Media3 is a place for lively, intelligent discussion about media matters with the people who produce media in New Zealand -- and the people who find themselves the subject of media stories.

Presenter Russell Brown and the rest of the Media3 team believe in being both intelligent and entertaining -- and creating more light than heat.

In a media sector experiencing rapid and historic change -- not least in the blurring of the lines between consumers and producers of media -- there'll never be a shortage of stories.

The show is recorded in front of a live audience in Auckland and it onscreen debates and interviews are accompanied by field reports, news backgrounders and, says Brown, "occasional mickey-taking of our media peers."

Media3 screens on TV3 at 11.30pm on Wednesdays and 10.30am on Saturdays with the support of NZ On Air.
