Changes to Afternoon Programming Radio New Zealand National

Changes to Afternoon Programming Radio New Zealand National

Simon Mercep takes over from Jim Mora as host of Afternoons on Radio New Zealand National from 1 pm to 4 pm this afternoon in the first stage of a two-step process of change for the network’s afternoon and drive time news programming.

Jim Mora continues to host The Panel from 4 pm to 5pm, a very popular segment with the biggest station share of afternoon radio listening in New Zealand. With Jim Mora at the microphone, The Panel has grown its share of listenership by almost 40% in the last 6 years.

From Monday 7th July, Jim Mora and Mary Wilson will combine their complementary broadcasting talents as co-hosts of Checkpoint, another of Radio New Zealand’s number one ranked day-parts.

The tandem hosting of Checkpoint will use Jim Mora’s presentation skills to introduce a new dimension to the sound of the strong news based programme.

While the overall sound of Checkpoint will change with dual hosting, the programme will not change editorially. The focus will remain 100% news driven and Checkpoint will continue to give over 200,000 listeners the most authoritative and complete summary of the day’s news available in New Zealand.
