NZME Secures Exclusive Radio Rights for America’s Cup

31 May 2018 – Newstalk ZB and Radio Sport have covered the America’s Cup since 1983, and this series will be no different as NZME announce today they have entered into an agreement with TVNZ to secure exclusive radio rights for the 36th America’s Cup Presented by Prada in March 2021. They’ll also cover all preceding events including the America’s Cup World Series in 2019 & 2020, the America’s Cup Christmas Race in December 2020 and the Prada Cup Challenger Selection series in January & February 2021.

Listeners will remember the iconic race last year, with Peter Montgomery in Bermuda calling Emirates Team New Zealand to victory live on Newstalk ZB & Radio Sport. Listeners will also be able to tune in on iHeartRadio to hear Emirates Team New Zealand defend the Auld Mug on their home turf of Auckland.

NZME CEO Michael Boggs says the exclusive coverage means New Zealanders won’t miss a moment of the legendary race. “We are incredibly excited to be offering exclusive radio commentary to New Zealanders for this series that unites the nation. The teams are incredibly passionate about sharing every moment, every detail with listeners, from the second the challengers arrive on our shores until the Cup is won.

“Our platforms mean Kiwis all over the country will be able to stay up to date with the events.”

Radio Sport is New Zealand’s only 24-hour sport station and produces the most live sport content on radio; last year, they delivered 1186 hours of live sport commentary. Newstalk ZB is the number one commercial radio station in New Zealand, and NZME as a network reaches over 3.2 million Kiwis.

As official broadcaster of the 36th America’s Cup, TVNZ will screen all event races live on free to air television as well as streamed across its platforms.
