RNZ National on verge of being number one station in the country

The third radio survey of the year gives RNZ National a weekly audience of 625,500 listeners, just 300 shy of the nation’s biggest radio station, The Edge. RNZ National programme manager David Allan shares his thoughts on why the station—and RNZ's other properties—are tracking so well.

Radio survey results: Newstalk ZB still strong, Mai FM takes big leap and MediaWorks hits a milestone as all stations grow

Yesterday, a picture was widely circulated showing Hilary Barry carrying a box of Moët into the MediaWorks office. And it’s more than likely that other employees at the media company will be taking a few more laps to the local Liquorland today, because nothing provides a better reason for heavy drinking than the release of the radio results. This will also be the case for NZME, which will similarly be cracking open a few chilled beverages this evening. But none will be celebrating harder than the Mai FM crew, who had a particularly strong survey.

Newstalk ZB releases its first TVC in ten years the weekend before Paul Henry launch

From the outset of the announcement that the Paul Henry Show would run concurrently across TV and radio, MediaWorks made clear its intention to drive its audience share in the morning slots, which have until now been dominated by NZME on the radio side and TVNZ on TV. But NZME isn't simply sitting back and spectating the arrival of Henry. For the first time in ten years, Newstalk ZB has released a TVC, which is somewhat unsurprisingly voiced-over by NZME's cross-channel star Mike Hosking.

Wells channels his inner Hosking

Mike Hosking is one of the country's most popular broadcasters, and he's renowned for his strongly voiced opinions on Newstalk ZB and Seven Sharp, where many believe his introduction as host along with Toni Street has been the catalyst for improving ratings this year. But not everyone agrees with his sometimes controversial views, with one Facebook commenter saying he's a "bitter middle aged men with too much money and power". So Jeremy Wells, breakfast co-host of Newstalk ZB's sister station Radio Hauraki, has riffed on Hosking's love of ranting with a series of brilliant impressions.

New Zealand Radio Awards: MediaWorks collects mountain of awards, TRN dominates talkback

Although radio usually sits in the background while the in vogue content delivery mediums soak up the limelight, the last few weeks have bucked that trend and brought radio to the centre of a varied range of media discussions. And given that radio is currently attracting so much attention, it’s only fitting that the New Zealand Radio Awards last night celebrated the best talent among those who are often heard and rarely seen (although, this is changing). As was the case last year, MediaWorks again led the charge in terms of numbers by picking up a total of 29 gongs throughout the course of the night, followed by TRN with 15 and Radio New Zealand with nine.

The Rock, Newstalk ZB and Radio NZ recognised by experts

The latest radio survey was released last week and, as expected, various 'we're number one' claims came spewing forth. Of course, these claims are based on what the people actually listen to. But we all know the people don't know what they're talking about. That's why we need experts to make decisions, and the experts have done just that to decide on the winners of the NZ Radio Awards.
