2004 Music Awards Broadcast Across New Zealand

Kiwi music fans will this year enjoy national television and radio coverage of the annual music awards.

The 2004 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards – to be presented in Auckland on September 22 – will be broadcast during prime-time on music channel C4.

In addition, there is to be comprehensive support from the CanWest stable of radio stations including Channel Z, The Edge, The Rock, and More FM.

Free-to-air C4 is to broadcast a one-hour prime-time special with another four subsequent plays on C4 as well as a repeat on sister channel TV3.

C4 and Channel Z will also both broadcast recorded pre-show specials, popping the questions to VIP guests and celebrities as they arrive for the awards show at Auckland’s Aotea Centre.

Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards spokesperson Adam Holt is singing the praises of the partnership deal.

“This is simply great for music fans nation-wide. Everyone knows how popular and diverse Kiwi music is now – and we have had good news coverage in the past – but dedicated national television and radio support is fantastic.

“C4 is going really well, so everyone involved is thrilled we’re able to take our “new look” awards to the whole country.”

The Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards are being held later this year to better align eligibility dates and so winners and nominated artists can benefit from the lead up to Christmas, the industry’s peak selling period.

The 2004 awards are for material released between January 1, 2003 and May 31, 2004.

Key points of the partnership with CanWest are:

- One hour Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards special broadcast on C4 and repeated on TV3.
- Four subsequent replays on C4.
- Recorded pre-show special on C4 hosted by Jaquie Brown and Clarke Gayford.
- Up to 60 pre-event broadcasts on C4 and CanWest radio stations of nominees in different categories; from August 25.
- A 60-minute C4 finalists special plus competitions and promotions on C4 and all radio networks.
- Live radio broadcasts from backstage on the night of the Awards.

Greek Riddles:
Gordon Campbell On The Recent Smackdown Over Greece

There had been a fortnight of fevered buildup. Yet here we are in the aftermath of the February 28 showdown between the new Syriza government in Greece and the European Union “troika” and… no-one seems entirely sure what happened. Did the asteroid miss Earth?

It seems to have. The EU still exists. Syriza is now claiming a victory of sorts. It doesn’t help that the only people who do appear to be sure (the Greeks buckled) are claiming the exact opposite to what the other group (the Greeks won!) are saying. Plus, there are bets either way e.g. Bloomberg News: “Its too early to say who caved in to whom.” More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Whether NZ Troops Are The Least Of Islamic State’s Problems

Given that it has been politically packaged and sold as a training mission, the Iraq deployment announced yesterday by Prime Minister John Key seemed to be mysteriously short of actual trainers...
