New Political Editor For Radio New Zealand

New Political Editor For Radio New Zealand

Radio New Zealand has announced the appointment of Kathryn Ryan as its new Political Editor.

Kathryn Ryan has a background in print and radio journalism and has a post-graduate Diploma in Journalism from Canterbury University. She received a Chevening David Low Fellowship to the Reuter Foundation Programme at Green College, Oxford, in 1998 and has been a member of the Radio New Zealand Parliamentary Press Gallery for the past three years covering the 1999 and 2002 elections.

Acting Managing Editor for Radio New Zealand News, Terry Brown, welcomed the appointment:

“Kathryn is an experienced and savvy political reporter with three years on Radio New Zealand’s parliamentary gallery team. She is well regarded by colleagues and has demonstrated a keen ability to provide informed reportage and analysis of the political scene. I am confident of her ability to maintain the high standards of coverage and leadership expected of our Political Editor.”

Radio New Zealand has established a reputation for the highest standards of political reporting. Commentary and analysis of events on Morning Report, Nine to Noon and Checkpoint are regarded as compulsive listening for anyone interested in politics in this country.

Kathryn Ryan sees her new role as an exciting challenge.

“ Our listeners have come to expect political analysis that is thought provoking, original and authoritative. I’ve enjoyed being part of a strong Gallery team over the past three years, and I’m committed to maintaining our standards of reporting and commentary. The Editor’s role is both a privilege and a responsibility, and I’m looking forward to it immensely.”

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
