RNZ Presenter Wins International Award

RNZ Presenter Wins International Award

Radio New Zealand’s Kylee Maloney has been selected as one of the winners of the 2006 Voice Awards sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Writers Guild of America West.

Kylee, who is blind, and has experienced mental illness, won the award for her work as producer and presenter of One In Five, National Radio’s disability issues programme broadcast on National Radio on Sunday evenings.

The Voice Awards honour entertainment industry writers and producers who have given "voice" to people with mental health problems by incorporating empathetic and accurate portrayals of the issues in their work.

Commenting on the announcement, Radio New Zealand Chief Executive, Peter Cavanagh, paid tribute to the quality of the One in Five programme and work of its producer / presenter.

“ Kylee Maloney’s achievements with her One in Five programme reflect the very best values of public service broadcasting and underline the importance of quality programmes which help our understanding of mental health issues. This award is well deserved personal recognition for Kylee’s professionalism and dedication to her work as a public service broadcaster.”

A graduate of the New Zealand Radio Training School, Kylee Maloney undertook a period of training at Radio New Zealand supported by the State Services Commission Mainstream programme before being appointed solo producer and presenter of One in Five in September 2005. She is also a musician, whose debut album First Light was released by Warner Brothers in New Zealand and the UK in 1998.

Winners of the 2006 Voice Awards will receive their awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday, August 23rd.
