Radio New Zealand Radio Summer Programming

Summer programming schedules for Radio New Zealand’s National Radio and Concert FM networks will begin from Christmas Day and remain in place until regular programmes resume on Monday 23rd January.

Classical music fans will celebrate New Year’s Eve in traditional style with Settling The Score, a twelve hour countdown of classical music favourites selected by popular vote.

On National Radio Summer Report will continue its popular holiday news programming with a mix of hard news from around the world and lighter magazine style local features. Afternoon entertainment will see the return of Phil O’Brien’s Matinee Idle and Saturday Afternoons will feature the 3D Radio Show. Nights will be hosted by Chris Whitta until Bryan Crump returns on January 16th

Broadcasting schedules are back to normal on January 23rd with the return of high profile news and current affairs programmes Morning Report, Nine To Noon, Midday Report, and Checkpoint.
