The proposed merger of two of the country's biggest news organisations will erode the role of the New Zealand media, according to an expert.

Media commentator Janet Wilson joined Paul Henry this morning to talk about it.

Australian companies APN and Fairfax have been holding talks on merging their New Zealand businesses, NZME and Fairfax NZ.

The merger is still subject to approval by the Commerce Commission, but Ms Wilson says that's likely.
