Its been a busy time since our last newsletter with the launch of our proposed new Funding Strategy . Read more about this and all the latest funding decisions in this edition.

The August newsletter kicks off with a shout out to Community Access radio - celebrating The Big Listen this month.

As our funding year draws to a close the May round was focused on ensuring the limited remaining funds were directed to achieving our annual targets.

Here at NZ On Air we have got off to a cracking start to 2016. In addition to the usual start-of-year flurry, we have had our strategic thinking hats on.

As we wind down after a frenetic finish to the year we can take stock on what has again been a year of ongoing change. I want to thank all of our wonderful content creators and broadcast partners for continuing to show New Zealanders the value of local content.
