Association for International Broadcasting Award
In 2007 Radio New Zealand International won the prestigious International Radio Station of the Year Award at the Association for International Broadcasting (AIB) Media Excellence Awards.
The AIB represents more than 25,000 public and commercial radio and television professionals worldwide and the annual awards recognise the very best in international broadcasting.
Highly commended runners-up for overall station of the year were the BBC World Service and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks-Radio Sawa.
In announcing the award the judges noted that the result was clear cut:
“Radio New Zealand International, targeting the Pacific, has proved it has the ability, clarity of vision and resources to deliver something that is valued by audiences throughout the region.”
Radio New Zealand International also won the Most Innovative Partnership category ahead of Radio Australia, Radio Canada, and Zonemedia Romantica.
The two awards were accepted on behalf of Radio New Zealand International by the New Zealand High Commissioner to London, the Rt Hon Jonathan Hunt (pictured about right with BBC World News anchor Mishal Hussain).
