Radio New Zealand Board appointments

11 December 2003 Media Statement

Radio New Zealand Board appointments

Appointments to the Board of Radio New Zealand have been announced today by Broadcasting Minister Steve Maharey.

Radio New Zealand is a public service broadcaster, operating in accordance with its Charter, providing four networks: Concert FM, Parliamentary Radio, Radio New Zealand International and National Radio.

Steve Maharey said current Board chair Brian Corban has been reappointed for a further three year term and EDS Managing Director Rick Ellis has been appointed to the Board, also for a three year term.

“Through its four networks, Radio New Zealand provides an essential service reflecting and analysing our people and their culture and issues.

“The reappointment of Brian Corban will provide the company with stability as its new chief excutive, Peter Cavanagh, takes up the reins.

“Rick Ellis brings his extensive knowledge of the New Zealand broadcasting scene to the Board. He was previously Chief Executive of TVNZ and currently chairs the Television Local Content Group, which is working on the development of industry-led voluntary targets for locally-made programming on New Zealand’s major free-to-air networks. Rick Ellis replaces Liz Hickey who has resigned from the Radio New Zealand Board,” Steve Maharey said.

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
