Data dump: Nielsen reveals its media trends of 2016

According to Nielsen's Media Trends 2016, New Zealanders are more connected, have more control and have more content to choose from than ever before. In the fragmented media market we are also more mobile, a trend which is set to continue as mobile device ownership has yet to reach saturation point. 

However, according to Nielsen, the key find is that content continues to be compelling and audiences will watch it using whatever device, and this is true for advertising as well.

Here are our top 12 findings from the report:

Magazine Engagement
Radio's Online Audience

The top individual programme last year was One News on 20 July. Making news headlines that day was snow in Hastings, the Auckland port protests, fight clubs in prisons, tradies needed for the Christchurch rebuild and Donald Trump.

Follow the money, part four: Where New Zealand's news media is finding pots of funding gold

Follow the money. It’s an axiom that journalists have believed in for years and a guiding light when it comes to holding the powerful to account. But that phrase is increasingly pertinent to those who run media businesses. As advertising money flows away from traditional channels towards large tech firms, the old business model of selling space around the news is creaking. And that has led to a range of experiments from publishers and broadcasters hoping to keep the lights on – and to keep shining those lights into dark places. Erin McKenzie dives into the local news media feed and finds plenty of experiments, but no simple answer to the funding conundrum.
