RNZ and The Spinoff announce content partnership
RNZ and The Spinoff are delighted to announce we’ll be sharing our journalism.
Under the arrangement material from rnz.co.nz will appear on thespinoff.co.nz and vice versa.
The new arrangement maintains RNZ’s policy of sharing content with media partners and extends to 16 the number of
agreements in place with a range of media organisations.
Glen Scanlon, RNZ’s head of digital, said The Spinoff team had blazed a path for independent websites and the
partnership extended RNZ’s proactive approach to make news and information available to more New Zealanders.
“The Spinoff is the source of some of New Zealand’s wittiest, and well-thought, journalism and we’re very much looking
forward to being able to feature it.
“Duncan Greive and his team are a creative force, and they have helped bring issues to the forefront of people’s minds
in many new ways.”
Greive, The Spinoff’s managing editor, said he was “extremely stoked to be entering a partnership with RNZ”.
“It’s an organisation we admire immensely. The work it does feels thoughtful, urgent and agenda-setting, and we're
privileged to be able to share it with our audience.
“We're particularly happy that we were able to design a pioneering relationship for RNZ – one which sees our work
available for syndication on their sites, as well as theirs on ours. It's our way of supporting a cultural and
journalistic giant which does so much to sustain the rest of our media.”
