Tahu FM to Launch on Sky


Maori radio network Tahu FM will be heard across the country when it begins broadcasting nationwide on SKY Digital channel 105 from this Sunday, December 1.

As its main studios are situated in Christchurch, Tahu FM currently reaches a limited audience in Christchurch, Dunedin, Invercargill and Kaikoura.

SKY TV has more than 500,000 subscribers, 72 percent of which have the digital service. So Tahu FM will immediately be available to over 800,000 New Zealanders with the potential to reach the whole country including over 30,000 Ngai Tahu tribal members throughout New Zealand.

Tahu FM’s format caters to a Maori niche market audience during the morning and changes to an English hip-hop youth format in the afternoon making it extremely popular among the 12 – 30 year old age group.

With an amalgamation of bi-lingual programmes focusing on topical Maori issues and shows that are all about the music, Tahu FM bestows a unique blend of both cultural and contemporary content.

Goose and Aubz kick off each weekday morning in the ‘Two Eggs For Breakfast’ morning show, followed by Maori language programmes plus Ruia Mai News at the top of the hour.

Throughout the afternoon Tahu FM plays a myriad of hip-hop, urban and R&B beats incorporating a chart countdown via Mai FM Auckland. …

SKY TV already boasts a diverse array of New Zealand radio stations including National Radio, Niu FM, the Edge, George FM, Concert FM and UP FM, all of which currently broadcast live across New Zealand on SKY Digital.

Also offered on SKY Digital is a 13-channel premium music service called SKY Digital Music, which is genre specific, free of advertisements and interruptions. These channels are NZ Chart, Pop, Smooth, Chill, Jazz, and House, 50s and 60s, Party, Rock, Country, Classical, Kids, Blues and a special temporary Christmas music channel available in December.

Tahu FM launches on SKY Digital channel 105 on Sunday, December 1.
