Coastguard and Radiolive take to the seas with partnership

Coastguard New Zealand is pleased to announce today a newly formed partnership with Mediaworks Radio’s news and current affairs brand, RadioLIVE.

Coastguard New Zealand CEO Patrick Holmes says “the partnership is a great way to collaborate and bring value to both partners helping us achieve our respective business objectives. RadioLIVE is keen to support the outstanding life saving work of our search and rescue volunteers, and we are very pleased to be working alongside them.

“One of our aims of working with RadioLIVE is to ensure that kiwis know that we are a charity with over 2,430 search and rescue volunteers who give up 307,000 hours of their time each year to save lives at sea.

“Most importantly we want to get the word out to RadioLIVE listeners promoting boating safety so that we can prevent tragedies at sea. It’s about showing New Zealanders how to keep safe when they’re out enjoying themselves on the water” says Mr Holmes.

Gaining deeper insight into the complexities of Coastguard’s work is important for this new partnership. Last week RadioLIVE presenters took to the water with local Coastguard volunteers to learn what it is that they do on a day to day basis.

Jana Rangooni, RadioLIVE General Manager says “Coastguard does incredible work around our coastline, and although they get plenty of coverage when things go wrong for people on the water, they do so much more.

“By partnering with Coastguard, RadioLIVE will be able to shine more light on one of New Zealand’s unsung organisations, and the difference they and their volunteers make to the wellbeing of New Zealand.”

To celebrate the new partnership between Coastguard and RadioLIVE, a money can’t buy experience is on offer for people who listen to Drive with Duncan Garner this week. One listener will get to spend an afternoon out on the water with Duncan Garner and Coastguard volunteers to see firsthand what action takes place on a typical day.

“A lot of our staff enjoy spending time out on the water, and the same is true for many of our listeners.

“Coastguard plays an important role in making this a safe activity for all of us and we are very proud to be working with them” adds Jana Rangooni.
