Awards For Radio New Zealand Broadcasters

Awards For Radio New Zealand Broadcasters

The quality and integrity of New Zealand public radio has been acknowledged during the presentation of awards to two Radio New Zealand broadcasters.

Radio New Zealand’s Henare Te Ua has had his outstanding contribution to Mäori arts and culture recognised by Creative New Zealand at the annual Ngä Täonga Toi/Te Waka Toi Awards evening, held in Auckland on Saturday, 7th September.

Henare Te Ua (Te Aitanga o Mahaki) of Auckland, affectionately regarded as one of the elder statesmen of New Zealand broadcasting, is co-presenter of National Radio’s Whenua programme and counts among his major achievements in broadcasting the opening of the Te Mäori exhibition in New York in 1984.

The 69-year-old has received many awards from the broadcasting industry, including the New Zealand Radio Industries Award for outstanding contribution to broadcasting. In 1990, he was awarded the Queen’s Commendation Medal and two years later received the Queen’s Service Medal for services to New Zealand.


Radio New Zealand’s specialist Education Correspondent, Gael Woods, has won the inaugural Teacher Education Forum of Aotearoa New Zealand (TEFANZ ) excellence in Educational Journalism Award announced the Minister of Education, Trevor Mallard.

The TEFANZ awards were established to recognise the important contribution journalism makes to the community’s understanding of education issues and to reward excellence in this area of journalism.

Gael Woods winning entry, selected from 22 submissions from leading New Zealand print and broadcast media, addressed an issue, which captures national interest – New Zealand’s success or failure in winning medals in international sporting competition- and the links with current education curriculum and school practice.

Commenting on the award announcements, Radio New Zealand Chief Executive, Sharon Crosbie, emphasised the value of the national investment in public radio:

“ The public of New Zealand can be reassured when such awards, judged by external professionals, recognise the quality, skills and dedication of our broadcasters, and the outstanding work they produce in meeting Radio New Zealand’s Charter obligations. “

National Radio and Concert FM are networks of Radio New Zealand
and are funded through New Zealand On Air
