Cavanagh Joins Auckland Conference Line-Up

Cavanagh Joins Auckland Conference Line-Up /

AUCKLAND (JEANZ Online/Pacific Media Watch) - Radio NZ chief Peter Cavanagh is the latest keynote speaker to join the line-up of experts at the joint Journalism Education Association/Journalism Education Association NZ conference in Auckland next month.

Cavanagh will lead the radio ‘stream’ of speakers at the three-day international event. Before joining Radio New Zealand, he was head of television for Australia’s multicultural public service broadcaster SBS.

He joins British media professor Roy Greenslade (print stream) and Maori TV’s head of news Te Anga Nathan (television) as the conference’s main drawcards. Each speaker will be followed by a panel discussion on the future of their particular medium.

More than 80 delegates from across Australasia and the Pacific/Asia region are expected to attend the joint conference. Interest has also been shown from the northern hemisphere, including the US and Pakistan.

This is the second joint JEA/JEANZ conference in New Zealand. The previous one was at Canterbury University in 1994.

Convener Allison Oosterman (AUT University) is thrilled with the way the conference is shaping up.

“The variety of speakers and papers is most encouraging. It’s obvious, in this fast-changing media landscape, that the theme of the conference has caught people’s imagination," she said.

“A book on the conference theme of digital media is being launched on the second day.”

Organisers are urging would-be delegates not to leave it too late to register or find accommodation.

“It’s at the start of summer and we would hate for people to miss out,” said Oosterman. “We’ve kept the costs as low as possible. It’s a really affordable international conference.”

The conference is sponsored by AUT University’s School of Communications Studies, TVNZ, Sunday Star-Times, New Zealand Herald, National Business Review, Printsprint, the University of Canterbury and the Journalism Training Organisation (JTO).
