New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) is a result of bringing together three New Zealand media brands, APN NZ, The Radio Network (TRN) and GrabOne and unifying them under one overarching banner. The result is an organisation with a portfolio of radio, digital, e-commerce and print brands producing fantastic content, targeting New Zealand audiences.
NZME is all about audiences: New Zealand audiences who want perspective on what’s going on in the world, and a window on what’s coming next.
Each week we connect with over 3.3 million* Kiwis. Whether they’re reading, listening, or watching, we deliver them the content they need wherever and whenever they want it, across digital, print, radio and on-demand video platforms.
Prime among these are iconic Kiwi brands such as The New Zealand Herald, Newstalk ZB, The Hits, ZM, WatchMe, and our e-commerce platform GrabOne. In all, we have a network of over 80 media brands, fronted by homegrown talent, that reach audiences the length and breadth of the country.
For an advertiser this presents opportunities to target a mass Kiwi audience, or local Taranaki audience, with the ability to drill down to specific customer segments within it. In Taranaki our radio brands include The Hits, Newstalk ZB, ZM, Coast, Hauraki, Radio Sport, Flava, and Hokonui. While in print we offer the NZ Herald and Stratford Press. And of course all these brands have a digital off shoot.
Traditional integrated advertising is twinned with the non-traditional. Our NZME Create Me unit presents powerful, out of the box promotional openings for clients in the form of branded content, bespoke digital services, video production, radio brand engagement and experiential advertising. Meanwhile NZME Events manages and delivers bespoke events each year for corporate clients.
As a business we’re focussed on delivering the very best in news, sport and entertainment to New Zealanders, ensuring we’re in step with our audiences and attuned to the wants and wishes of our advertising partners.
