NZ On Air congratulates top-rating Radio New Zealand National

NZ On Air congratulates Radio New Zealand National on being the country’s number one radio station yet again in 2012.

The All New Zealand Radio Survey conducted by the Nielson research company shows Radio New Zealand National has a nationwide share of 10.5% for the 2012 calendar year – its nearest rival has 8.9%.

It’s the second year in a row Radio New Zealand National has earned the title.

Radio New Zealand says its flagship Morning Report retained its position as most popular programme, with Nine to Noon, The Panel, Checkpoint, Nights, Saturday Morning and Sunday Morning also topping their respective slots.

“Radio New Zealand continues to provide top-quality programming and its audience share is well deserved” says NZ On Air chief executive Jane Wrightson. “I want to congratulate everyone who works so hard to keep informative and entertaining Radio New Zealand programming on air for 24-hours of every day of the year”.

Both Radio New Zealand National and Radio New Zealand Concert are proudly funded through NZ On Air.

"You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two," commented Wynton Marsalis, who has repeatedly hired her to front his jazz orchestra and mounted a 25 foot high portrait of her on the exterior of Lincoln Center. “She radiates authority. She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

Max Rashbrooke Review: The King's Singers and Voices New Zealand

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. The latest incarnation of this six-strong male singing group includes Kiwi Christopher Bruerton, and it was a delight to hear him sing the solo on the achingly beautiful My Love Is like a Red, Red Rose.
