Radio New Zealand is a Crown entity established under the Radio New Zealand Act 1995. Radio New Zealand provides listeners with exciting and independent radio programmes in accordance with the Radio New Zealand Charter. Radio New Zealand broadcasts over three nationwide networks; Radio New Zealand National, Radio New Zealand Concert and the AM network which relays Parliamentary proceedings. Radio New Zealand International (RNZI) is our overseas shortwave service, broadcasting to the South Pacific and beyond, while Radio New Zealand News provides comprehensive, up-to-the-minute news and current affairs information. National and Concert are funded by New Zealand On Air. Public broadcasting in New Zealand had its beginnings in 1925 when, under a five year contract, the government granted the Radio Broadcasting Company substantial income from radio dealers' licences and 25 shillings from each receiving licence on the condition that the company expand four existing stations in the main centres to establish a national non-commercial broadcasting system, the direct forerunner of today's National Radio. Company income was insufficient to meet demands for expansion and 1931 legislation established the government-appointed New Zealand Broadcasting Board which was also dependent on licence fee income. In 1936 the first Labour government set up the National Broadcasting Service as a government department which soon added fully commercial stations. After the war this system became the New Zealand Broadcasting Service (NZBS) and in 1962 government department status ended with the establishment of the New Zealand Broadcasting Corporation (NZBC). During the next thirty years the system was changed numerous times but a public, non-commercial radio service remained as an integral part of the mix. The 1995 Broadcasting Act established Radio New Zealand as a stand-alone, Crown-owned entity with major responsibilities being National Radio, Concert FM and Radio New Zealand International. Radio New Zealand National Broadcasting 24 hours a day, Radio New Zealand National reaches almost every New Zealander.

Its programme mix includes news and current affairs, documentaries and features, drama and music. At least 33% of the music it broadcasts is New Zealand in origin. Talk-orientated programmes make up 60% of air time. National is well known for its high profile programmes and personalities including 'Nine to Noon with Kathryn Ryan', 'Saturday Morning with Kim Hill' and 'Sunday Morning with Chris Laidlaw'. Specialist features and documentaries produced exclusively for National focus on the interests of particular groups in the community. Drama production includes plays and readings of New Zealand literature. Māori programming can be heard across the schedule. Read more on Last.fm.
