RNZ Pacific

Radio New Zealand Pacific (formerly RNZI)

An operating division of Radio New Zealand Limited, RNZ Pacific (formerly known as RNZI) broadcasts in digital and analogue short wave to radio stations and individual listeners across the Pacific region. Around twenty Pacific radio stations relay RNZ Pacific material daily, and individual short-wave listeners and internet users across the world tune in directly to RNZ Pacific content.

While the Ministry funds Radio New Zealand for its broadcast services to the Pacific and monitors these services on behalf of the Minister for Broadcasting and Media, the Treasury’s Commercial Operations Group also has a complementary role in respect of the operations of Radio New Zealand. The Treasury advises shareholding Ministers on Crown company performance and ownership issues.
