Last night, TVNZ and its agency and production partners gathered at Auckland’s Shed 10 to cut the ribbon on a new season line up. But as much as it was a celebration of what’s to come, it was a chance for the broadcaster to recognise all it’s achieved in the past year in its push to connect with more Zealanders than ever in more places than ever before.
NZME is putting its “state-of-the-art” newsroom to use, launching a video news show next month dubbed NZ Herald Focus, hosted by some well-known media personalities. We chat to managing editor Shayne Currie about the show’s content, the strategy behind it and the decision to step into an already crowded space.
When it comes to reaching New Zealanders, ye olde traditional broadcast media is still on top, with the results of NZ On Air’s independent media consumption study showing the majority of Kiwis are still consuming lots of linear television and live radio every day. But music audiences, the young and the Asian community are leading the charge to digital platforms.
