Radio New Zealand First To Use Web Cameras in 2005

Radio New Zealand disputes the claim by commercial network Newstalk ZB that their introduction of webcams to studios is the first such venture for a major radio station in New Zealand.

Radio New Zealand National introduced web cams to the studio for the summer of 2005 for the Matinee Idle programme hosted by radio personality Phil O’Brien. Matinee Idle is a popular established feature of summer programming on the public service broadcasting network.

Radio New Zealand has also experimented with the use of web cams and live streaming video for presentation from live music venues during the Music 101 programme.

Latest research shows that Radio New Zealand National has a cume audience of more than 500,000 New Zealanders.
