The Prime Minister has made it clear she will fight to keep RNZ Concert on an FM frequency.

Jacinda Ardern says she's frustrated RNZ pushed ahead with announcing proposed changes to RNZ Concert, when the government had asked for time to discuss alternatives.

RNZ is proposing to remove Concert from its FM frequencies and transform it into an automated nonstop music station which will stream online and play on AM radio.

RNZ political reporter Jo Moir has the details.
