Media heavyweights NZME and Are Media (formerly Bauer) have teamed up in a new content-share deal, allowing NZ Herald Premium subscribers access to top-quality journalism and commentary from The Listener.
In addition, all Herald readers will be able to read lifestyle and entertainment content from the New Zealand Woman’s Weekly, Woman’s Day, The Australian Women’s Weekly and Your Home and Garden.
NZME Managing Editor Shayne Currie says: “Are Media’s writers, columnists and commentators produce high-quality journalism across its current affairs and lifestyle publications.
“Our partnership means Premium subscribers and other readers will access great content directly on nzherald.co.nz.”
Are Media’s New Zealand General Manager Stuart Dick adds: “We’re immensely proud to be bringing these titles back for our New Zealand readers.
“To be able to give even more Kiwis access to our journalism and stories through our partnership with NZME and the NZ Herald is very exciting.”
The Are-NZME syndication deal follows the launch of a Herald partnership with The Spinoff, allowing journalism and content to be shared across both platforms.
NZME CEO Michael Boggs says these partnerships are all about the audiences.
“Our mission is to give our readers access to the best journalism that New Zealand has to offer as well as access to content that focuses on Kiwis’ colourful and diverse lifestyles.”
