At a time of significant print decline as audiences migrate to digital, the NZ Herald has avodied the downward trend by growing its print readership year on year. We chat to NZME managing editor Shayne Currie about how the team has managed to do this.

The be all and end all of the oval ball

As the All Blacks depart to defend the Webb Ellis cup in the UK, the nation is gearing up for a few weeks of early morning code watching. It's obviously a pretty big deal for a rugby-loving nation and, as we saw during the Cricket World Cup, the clicks are likely to follow. But the Herald might be taking it a bit far with the branding of its rugby hub, which is sponsored by—who else?—Steinlager. Syrian refugee crisis? Pfffffff.

A message from 'Sally Midoff'

After the Blackcaps play in the Cricket World Cup final on Sunday, you can be sure there will be a host of print ads congratulating or commiserating the team the following day, as there was when the All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup in 2011. But Ford has got in early with a full-page ad featuring in today's Herald celebrating the glorious victory over the South Africans and warning Melburnian Mrs Mavis Madrigal to cover her gnomes and azaleas to protect them from flying round objects.

Jiminy crickets!

From Paul the octopus, to Paulo the octopus, to Futnik the pig, to Citta the elephant to Nicholas the llama to our own Richie McCow, supposedly psychic animals predicting the outcome of sports games is like catnip to media. And the Herald has introduced a new soothsaying creature to the list, with Cricket the cricket so far nailing three out of four games in the Cricket World Cup.

'Celebrating the best and confronting the worst': APN NZ mixes past, present and future to mark the Herald's 150th

150 years ago today, the first edition of the New Zealand Herald was printed. And APN NZ has gone to great lengths to celebrate the milestone, with one of its biggest ever promotions, a range of special editorial products and some significant changes to its digital properties.

Could of, should of, would of

There are a lot of words in a newspaper, most of them spelled right and grammatically correct. But a few grammar nerds were up in arms on Twitter yesterday after the Herald committed a cardinal sin and used the words 'might of' in a headline.

Special Group walks the advertising talk once again after Media Awards win—UPDATED

Not content with the attention it receives in the trade media after an award win, Special Group has made a habit of paying to get a bit more of it by placing full-page ads in the Herald, making it one of a rare few ad agencies that actually advertise. And it's done some more showing off after winning Best in Show at the Media Awards alongside Naked/Open for Unitec's 'We make the people who make it' campaign.

Saatchi & Saatchi and MDS staying put, Herald story leads to questions about online corrections—UPDATED

In John Drinnan's media column last Friday, one of his topics was the rumoured move of Saatchi & Saatchi and the Media Design School's offices to the Wynyard Quarter's innovation precinct. That's not happening and a correction was printed, but it is yet to appear online.

Kiwibank greases up to local SMEs with some useful largesse

There were plenty of naysayers when Kiwibank was launched, but, after ten years, few would argue it has done a stellar job of facing up the big Australian-owned banks on the personal banking front (it announced a tripling of profits recently and now has around ten percent of the retail market). But now it's aiming to bump up its business banking credentials with a campaign by Ogilvy and Ikon that aims to demonstrate how the bank can save SMEs time and money and let them get on with running their businesses.

Papers chart dual declines, but a rare few buck the trend

While the magazine sector recorded its third consecutive overall readership increase in the latest Nielsen CMI figures, the newspapers haven't fared quite so well, with an overall decline in total readership for all dailies and metropolitan titles that has been deemed significant by Nielsen and almost universal declines in paid circulation. But there are a couple of diamonds in the rough—particularly The Herald on Sunday and The Waikato Times—and, for the optimists, the numbers are still holding up much better than they are in comparison to many other markets.

Flip jumps on the cheap broadbandwagon, talks up free* broadband offer

Following a story in the Herald over the weekend about increased competition leading to a drop in broadband prices and increases in data allowances, new player Flip, a business in the CallPlus group of companies, and its agency Sugar&Partners decided to take the opportunity to link itself with the news and promote its offer of free* broadband with an ad in yesterday's Herald.

DraftFCB backs its benefactors, Stickman aims small

We've already written a fair bit about the strangely unusual approach of DraftFCB, that rare breed of advertising agency that actually advertises. And the agency behind APN's campaign to launch the new compact Herald took an opportunity to put itself out there once again with another good full-page print ad in the 'collector's edition' yesterday. And, not one to miss an opportunity for a few laffs, Pak'n'Save's spokestick Stickman also got involved with the relaunch and featured in three contextual ads, which were also created by DraftFCB.

As 'small Monday' looms, The Herald takes to TV

When Todd McLeay shifted from NZ Lotteries to the role of chief operating officer at APN NZ, one of the first things he did was go and talk with a bunch of ad agencies and media buyers to see what their feelings were about newspapers. The general consensus was that there was a lot of sparkle about digital but there wasn't too much love for print, mainly because "no-one was making a good case for it". And so the campaign to launch the compact version of the NZ Herald and redesign the website was born, and with the big launch day on Monday, the piece de resistance, a TVC by DraftFCB that shows the important role the paper has played in New Zealand's history, goes live tonight.

And now, the newspaper news

The magazine sector had some pretty good news to report in the latest round of readership and circulation figures and, given what's happening internationally, the New Zealand newspaper sector should also be fairly pleased with the results, which show there's still plenty of life in the old dogs yet.
