NZ On Air Awards Commercial & Regional Radio Stations

NZ On Air Awards Commercial & Regional Radio Stations

Announced mid-June 2023, four commercial and four regional radio stations have been given NZ On Air awards for playing more than 20% local music content over the past year. 

The network awards were made to George FM, Hauraki, Mai FM and ZM, while the four regional stations also awarded for achieving, and exceeding, the 20% threshold during 2022 were BayrockFM, NiuFM, PulzarFM in Christchurch and Whakatane’s Q97.  

The data gathered for the awards relates to airplay on commercial radio only and doesn’t include music played on public, student and iwi radio – which all have legislated benchmarks that commercial stations do not. Their data is tracked separately and also shows exceptional local content airplay results.
