National is always number one with me, but this times it’s not politics but media – RadioNZ National was the number one radio station in 2012:
The All New Zealand Radio Survey conducted by the Nielson research company shows Radio New Zealand National has a nationwide share of 10.5% for the 2012 calendar year – its nearest rival has 8.9%.
It’s the second year in a row Radio New Zealand National has earned the title.
Radio New Zealand says its flagship Morning Report retained its position as most popular programme, with Nine to Noon, The Panel, Checkpoint, Nights, Saturday Morning and Sunday Morning also topping their respective slots.
I listen to the radio a lot and RadioNZ National more often than not.
The national is of course a reference to nationwide not politics. If it was I sometimes detect a bias that would have it more accurately named RadioNZ Labour or something else well to the left of National.
