Good ONYA Radio New Zealand

The Save Radio New Zealand Facebook group has just reached 10,000 members. But that's not the only good news for the public service broadcaster, who on Friday picked up two awards at the inaugural ONYA awards.

The  ONYA's are peer moderated industry awards celebrating excellence in construction and practical application of New Zealand websites.

Radio New Zealand (RNZ) took home the awards for Best use of HTML and CSS and Best Accessibility. That makes for a very jam-packed awards shelf at RNZ headquarters. Last year RNZ snapped up the award for Best Radio Website at the 2009 New Zealand Radio awards, Best use of Open Source Software in Government in 2008 (spot the irony), and won Best Website Design at the 2007 Qantas Media Wards.

Radio New Zealand National also won the supreme award and was named New Zealand's best radio station at the 2009 New Zealand Radio Awards – the first time a non-commercial public service broadcaster has won the top award.

Not to mention the stations international achievement, winning the International Radio Station of the Year Award  at the Association for International Broadcasting (AIB) Media Excellence Awards in London in 2007.

We could go on, but you get the picture.

With more eyes gazing towards the net for their daily dose of news, these latest awards bode well for the broadcaster.
