New categories for RNZ's website - explained

7:56 pm on 20 June 2016

You may have noticed a few changes to our homepage today, as we prepare for a new website design launch in a few weeks.

Our national and regional news categories have merged in one section called "New Zealand", "Business" will now include rural business stories, and our Te Manu Korihi content has come under the category "Māori".

We've also created a number of new categories, including "Environment", "Media & Technology", "Science" and "Life & Society".

The changes will help us bring our different stories to you in a more sensible fashion, making it easier to discover material in related subject areas.

Keep an eye out for more changes in coming weeks.
