Prime Minister John Key is hosting a RadioLIVE show from 2pm this afternoon.
In a first for RadioLIVE, the show will feature the Prime Minister, listeners and some very special guests including Sir Richard Branson and Richie McCaw.
General Manager of RadioLIVE Jana Rangooni says: “This has been done in the UK and US but not, to the best of my knowledge, in New Zealand.
“We hope to make this an annual event for whoever is the Prime Minister at the time.”
RadioLIVE listeners will have the opportunity to talk to John Key directly, sharing what’s on their minds, and putting questions to the Prime Minister via phone and www.radiolive.co.nz.
In the not too distant past, people flocked to public meetings to hear politicians.
These days politicians have to make more of an effort to go to the people and doing it via the radio waves is a very good way to do that.
The PM was on NewsTalk ZB a couple of weeks ago taking questions from callers on everything from politics to the personal which included the last film he’d been to (The King’s Speech).
