‘Takarurehia e te Kawau, Kawea tō tātou reo ki te ao’‘Te Reo Irirangi o Maniapoto is recognised as the centre for iwi communications and Te Reo o Maniapoto’
Te Reo Irirangi o Maniapoto was founded by Te Pare Joseph, Waka Coffin (deceased), Ngaamo Thompson and Hotu Taane. Te Reo Irirangi o Maniapoto (TRIoM) Trust is a charitable trust, established by deed on the 6th August 1990.
Te Reo Irirangi o Maniapoto is the trading name and MFM Te Reo o Te Iwi (Maniapoto FM) is the branding title.
The first TRIoM premise was located on Te Kumi Road before the station relocated to Te Kūiti Primary School (the current Warehouse site, corner Rōrā and Alexandra Streets). From there, TRIoM relocated to Te Kumi Marae before relocating to its current premise on 96a Rōrā Street, Te Kūiti.
TRIoM was officially opened by Hon. Koro Wētere on 3 December 1990.
We opened to give our people a voice and to promote te reo me ōna tikanga
Our inclusive focus is on the ever increasing receptive and fluent whānau of te reo Māori, who love Maniapoto and want to know what’s happening in their rohe.
At MFM we challenge ourselves to provide a unique Maniapoto perspective by encouraging and strengthening the normalisation of the Māori language and culture through the medium of modern communications.
MFM broadcasts a mix of live and pre-recorded bilingual shows, designed to focus our targeted audience of receptive and fluent whānau of te reo Māori in Maniapoto. Being Maniapoto owned and operated, we embrace all that happens in our community and help bring iwi events, activities and issues to our listeners both within our on-air footprint area and around the world via our online activity.
