This newsletter marks the end of an era. The next batch of funding decisions (July) will be made under our new model, the NZ Media Fund and pretty much everything will have changed. The days of silo-ing money according to television, radio and digital are gone.

As we near the end of the first quarter of the year we are powering through the work to implement the NZ Media Fund from 1 July.

It seems like only yesterday that I sat down with my leadership team in January and laid out my thoughts on how and why we needed to change. The year has gone by in a flash and now here we are only days from the holidays and a well-earned break for all.

Its been a busy time since our last newsletter with the launch of our proposed new Funding Strategy . Read more about this and all the latest funding decisions in this edition.

The August newsletter kicks off with a shout out to Community Access radio - celebrating The Big Listen this month.
