Radio New Zealand Extends Podcasting Service

Radio New Zealand Extends Podcasting Service


Radio New Zealand is to significantly extend the range of National Radio programmes available via podcasting following a very successful three month trial of the new service.

From Monday 12th June listeners will be able to download their favourite interviews and programme segments from Nine to Noon and Afternoons with Jim Mora directly from the Radio New Zealand website www.radionz.co.nz .

Sunday Morning with Chris Laidlaw featuring Insight and Mediawatch and The Arts of Sunday will also be added to the list of daily and weekly podcasts which already includes Saturday Morning with Kim Hill, This Way Up, Our Changing World and Concert FM’s Upbeat programme.

Announcing the extension of the service Radio New Zealand Chief Executive, Peter Cavanagh, said the response to the podcasting trial had been nothing short of phenomenal.

“Radio New Zealand is leading the way in using new web-based technology to allow its listeners to hear their favourite programmes whenever and wherever they want.

“Over the past three months we estimate that there have been 400,000 programme downloads from the Radio New Zealand website – and the popularity of the new podcasting service is growing at more than 10% per week.

“The rapid growth in sales of iPods and MP3 players means that more and more people are choosing to download their favourite radio programmes and listen to them when they want to hear them – rather than being restricted to listening live when we choose to broadcast them.

“Radio New Zealand’s audio-on-demand and podcasting services have proved particularly popular with New Zealanders living abroad who can now stay in touch with news and issues from home by listening to their favourite shows on the web. “

Radio New Zealand’s website records more than half-a-million page impressions each month, with about 60% of the traffic coming from overseas audiences.
