Automated online RNZ Concert not enough - Helen Clark

From Morning Report, 7:56 am on 12 February 2020

RNZ's chief executive Paul Thompson was asked a blunt question yesterday: had he bungled announcements about the future of RNZ Concert and a new music channel for young listeners?

Not at all, he replied.

But although it now seems RNZ Concert will stay on the FM network, Thompson could give no guarantees about the future of presenters and other staff on the station.

Former Prime Minister Helen Clark, one of the vocal defenders of RNZ Concert, speaks to Susie Ferguson.
