Labour commits $38m for ‘RNZ Plus’ – MSN

Labour would spend up to $38 million on making Radio New Zealand a multi-media platform to keep up with the pace of change in the media.

Leader Jacinda Ardern says investment in public broadcast and journalism is vital in a changing and dynamic media world.

She said the intention was to enable “device-neutral” support.

Part of the $38m fund would go to a project called RNZ Plus, which Ms Ardern said would mirror services offered overseas, including BBC in the UK and ABC in Australia.
