Mediawatch: RNZ set to cut back Concert and launch new youth service


2020 is election year.

Now in 2020 we have a major shake up of the NZ media, but it is all done in secret and in an election year.

RNZ announces a major change in programming despite past failures in this area. Something is off about this in my view

In the biggest overhaul of its music services in years, RNZ is planning to cut back its classical music station RNZ Concert and replace it on FM radio with music for a younger audience as part of a new multimedia music brand. Mediawatch asks RNZ chief executive Paul Thompson and music content director Willy Macalister to explain the move.
