EPMU Recognises Contribution of Peter Cavanagh

Media Statement

EPMU Recognises Contribution of Peter Cavanagh

The EPMU, which represents journalists working at Radio New Zealand, joins others in recognising the contribution of Peter Cavanagh as chief executive of Radio New Zealand.

Mr Cavanagh has announced he will not seek to extend his contract when it ends in December.

During his time as chief executive over the past nine years he has given admirable service to Radio New Zealand and strongly defended its public service broadcasting ethos despite political pressures and financial constraints.
Accusations that he has resisted change are wide of the mark. Under his leadership Radio New Zealand has expanded its website and is now looking to launch a web-based youth radio network. What he has resisted have been any attempts to undermine the station's commitment to quality, independent public service broadcasting.

We expect the board of Radio New Zealand will look to replace Mr Cavanagh with someone with the same commitment.
