RNZ-New Zealand Election17 coverage moves to seven platforms
Radio New Zealand has been delivering election results to New Zealanders for decades – the first broadcast media organisation to do so. This month RNZ’s coverage moves to a new level – on seven media platforms including, for the first time, television.
On election night, Saturday the 23rd of September, RNZ’s Election17 coverage can be accessed on RNZ National, RNZ’s website rnz.co.nz, Freeview Channel 50, FaceTV on Sky Channel 83, the Morning Report and Checkpoint Facebook pages, and on YouTube.
The night will be hosted by two of the country’s most experienced and respected journalists, John Campbell and Guyon Espiner. RNZ Head of News Carol Hirschfeld says “In a digital age it’s crucial we’re available instantly and everywhere. Up to half of the population receives its news on a handheld device so we’ll be putting ourselves in the hands of more New Zealanders than ever, here and around the world.”
RNZ National’s post-election coverage will see Morning Report presenter Susie Ferguson and Nine To Noon host Kathryn Ryan join forces for a 2 hour special from 9:00am Sunday, 24th September. (C+T Mag)
