We provide funding support for priority genres to add diversity to the airwaves. Our priority is spoken programmes on nationwide platforms to reach the largest number of listeners. Our priorities are:
The content we fund would not be available without public funding support, and fills an important need.
We have a single strategy which guides our investments and a single platform-neutral fund, the NZ Media Fund.
We also fund Music radio programmes across a wide range of stations - commercial radio, alternative radio and the Student Radio Network. These programmes aim to introduce audiences to new local music and are funded as part of our local music promotions work.
