I’ve Noticed NZME Owned Mix had Launched in Wellington Recently.


Has anybody any archived Auckland TNS ratings from prior to 2004? I am also searching for Christchurch and Wellington data. Any information is greatly appreciated.


Your best bet may be the New Zealand Radio facebook group.


Good idea - thanks!


Duncan Garner is Hosting the Drive Home on The Rock 3-4pm today.

Jono and Ben are hosting Radio Live Drive 3-4pm today.


Certainly takes Mediaworks blatant cross promotions to a new level.


I wonder how quickly they would have switched back in the event of a terror attack or breaking natural disaster.


The studios use digital desks on the same network so they would have been able to switch to the rock studio quickly if needed. Also newsreader Geoff Bryant could have covered the story if need be.

The shows Technical Producer Kim Blair is also a host and could have taken over.
