Radio New Zealand

While the Ministry funds Radio New Zealand (RNZ) for its broadcast services to the Pacific and monitors these services on behalf of the Minister for Broadcasting and Media, we have a complementary role alongside The Treasury in respect of the operations of Radio New Zealand. The Treasury also advises the Minister of Finance on board appointments and governance.

Learn about the Ministry’s Strong Public Media work following a Cabinet agreement to commission a business case to examine the viability of creating a new, fit-for-purpose public media entity. Any new public media entity would draw on the skills and experience of TVNZ and RNZ.
