ZM covers George FM with love, banter ensues

The marcomms sector is renowned more for its competitiveness than its collegiality. But it's nice to see The Radio Network's ZM can still appreciate MediaWorks' George FM. 

A story on detailed how a new feature on ZM called 'Under The Covers', which showcases covers sung by international acts like Ellie Goulding and Katy Perry, also included a couple of local acts, two of which were recorded specifically for George FM Breakfast's 'Damn, I wish I was your cover' section (Six60's version of Rudimental's 'Feel the Love' and Tahuna Breaks' version of Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky').
