The Wireless was born out of an idea for a youth radio network, which has been talked about and tried various ways over the past 20 years.
But the time for a radio network has passed. The internet brings us to an age where you can tell a story anyway you want and reach people wherever they are, whenever they choose.
NZ On Air provides funding for Radio New Zealand to enable it to provide editorially-independent, high quality public radio for all New Zealanders. The Wireless produces inspiring, insightful and entertaining stories for New Zealanders who have grown up in the digital age.
