RNZ and Indian Newslink Announce Content Partnership

RNZ and Indian Newslink Announce Content Partnership

RNZ has announced a content-sharing agreement with the Auckland-based publisher Indian Newslink.

Indian Newslink publishes a fortnightly newspaper with a readership of more than 65,000, making it the most-read Indian newspaper in New Zealand. It also runs several news websites , and is prominent in organising a number of awards for the New Zealand Indian community.

The new arrangement maintains RNZ’s policy of sharing content with media partners and extends to 13 the number of agreements in place with a range of media organisations.

Glen Scanlon, RNZ’s head of digital, said the agreement with Indian Newslink was in keeping with RNZ’s push to work with different media outlets and reach more New Zealanders.

“We really want to be a helpful partner to the broader journalism industry and believe these kind of deals allow us to do that while making sure we meet all of our charter commitments to reach Kiwis with their stories. We expect to announce more partnerships in the future.”

Editor and general manager of Indian Newslink, Venkat Raman, emphasised the importance of the new relationship.

“While accuracy is paramount and sacred to any news organisation, speed is equally important in today’s world, which constantly looks for news updates. Digital technology makes that requirement standard, and our tie-up with Radio New Zealand will also enhance credibility and quality. This is an exciting development in media relationship and we in Indian Newslink look forward to meaningful and professional partnership with Radio New Zealand.

The South Asian community is of growing importance to New Zealand and to the world and we believe that with Radio New Zealand, we will be in a better position to disseminate information through reports and features.”
