Newshub is Mediaworks’ multi-platform TV, radio and digital news service, merging 3 News and RadioLIVE news services into a combined organisation. The service will provide the latest news and in-depth analysis across one of New Zealand’s largest media organisations and operates from an integrated newsroom.
We are bringing an entire organisation together from the TV, Radio and Digital newsrooms with a clear vision of how we can best serve the evolving New Zealand audience. This is a substantial investment. It has been – and remains a huge amount of work – to realise a digital-led 24/7 Newshub.MediaWorks Group CEO Mark Weldon
“Newshub will deliver the very best news content, with specialist content teams providing expert analysis and insight to give Kiwis the information they want,” says Group Head of News Mark Jennings.
“Operating 24/7, our focus will be on providing the latest, most up-to-date news, in-depth coverage, breaking alerts and more, providing our audiences across all platforms with stories and information relevant to them, with a strong emphasis on digital, servicing web, mobile devices and social media.”
“We have multiple audiences with a range of interest areas and changing needs – and currently – a variety of ways of consuming news. Newshub will ensure we meet those audience needs, providing a modern, innovative and credible news service for all New Zealanders.”
The transformation will be combined with a significant investment in technology, including graphics, editing and production equipment, to ensure the best possible news product.
