Newstalk ZB international finalist

Staff Writer

In what has so far been a year of recognition for New Zealands Newstalk ZB, the station today was announced as a finalist in the New York Festivals International Radio Program and Promotion Awards.

The reporting of the Christchurch earthquake on 22 February was also recognised in the Best Coverage of a Breaking News Story category. 

"Many of our reporters left their families at home in broken houses because they knew how much the people of Christchurch needed information, I am incredibly proud of our coverage, our team and our station" said General Manager of Talk Dallas Gurney (pictured)

The news comes off the back of Newstalk ZB winning a number of accolades in the New Zealand Radio Awards last thursday (here) and sweeping the number one position in the recent New Zealand ratings in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington (here).

There are ten ABC entries that have made the finals representing Australia, the entire list of international finalists can be seen here.

The awards will be presented in New York on 18 June.
