NZ On Air encouraged by boost to public media in Budget 2018

17th May 2018

NZ On Air welcomes the announcement of an extra $15m in Budget 2018 for public media in 2018/19.

The exact allocation between NZ On Air and RNZ has yet to be determined by the Ministerial Advisory Group.

Following 10 years of static funding, NZ On Air welcomes any new money for public media which supports a strong democracy and allows New Zealanders to experience quality local content made by and for New Zealanders.

“We look forward to hearing more about the allocation of the funding, so that we can plan to deliver more quality public media for local audiences in the coming year,” said NZ On Air Chief Executive Jane Wrightson.
