Easy to say, hard to do: the thinking behind Murphy and Jennings' Newsroom

The news this week of veteran news heads Mark Jennings and Tim Murphy launching a news service was widely celebrated across journalism circles, with many applauding the arrival of a publication dedicated to, as Murphy said, focusing on quality and “doing the news”. But was that excitement a bit pre-emptive? And – the question of the ages – how is it going to pay for it all?

'A glance on a newsfeed, a passing view on a motorway, a share here, a post there': ASB's sponsorships try to heed the rules of modern brand building

While the numbers competing in the Auckland Marathon were down significantly this year due to the clash with the Rugby World Cup final, ASB had a foot in both camps as a sponsor of the All Blacks and the event. So it couldn't really lose. And its clever 'Run down Your Rate' campaign was the latest in a series of impressive sponsorship activations from the bank and its agency Saatchi & Saatchi.

ANZ muscles into the rugby limelight with its Dream Big initiative

During the Cricket World Cup, ANZ used its Dream Big initiative to get cut-through the marketing noise during the Cricket World Cup. Rather than focusing exclusively on the event, the bank brought its Black Caps sponsorship to life by travelling around the country showing its support for grassroots cricket by upgrading the facilities at various grounds around the country. And now, with the Rugby World Cup fast approaching, ANZ is at it again, this time renovating Waitemata Rugby Club in a new video posted to Facebook. The difference in this instance is that ANZ isn't even a sponsor of Rugby New Zealand, the All Blacks or the Rugby World Cup.

Cutting through the sponsorship clutter: how ANZ got noticed during the Cricket World Cup

"We’ve been through the bad and the good,” says ANZ’s head of sponsorship Sue McGregor in describing the bank's 16-year partnership with Cricket New Zealand.
