    How the Stuff deal shuffles the NZ media deck

    How the Stuff deal shuffles the NZ media deck

    Just six days after WBD confirmed the end of Newshub, news broke that Stuff would take over delivery of the 6pm bulletin from July 6th. It's a huge deal, which could vault Stuff to video stardom, or become a huge pain and distraction. Duncan Greive analyses the spiralling implications of what will prove a major sliding doors moment in New Zealand's recent news media history.

    How Madison Reidy built a YouTube smash for the NZ Herald

    It's been a bleak start to the year for journalism – but it's worth dwelling on where growth and innovation is still happening. Madison Reidy is just 28, but has already worked at three news organisations and an investment bank. She joins Duncan Greive on The Fold to talk about 100 episodes of Markets with Madison – and one very challenging and viral interview with Reserve Bank governor Adrian Orr.

    Another dark day for NZ media, and the plan? Nothing.

    Another dark day for NZ media, and the plan? Nothing.

    Over the last 30 hours TVNZ and Warner Bros. Discovery have confirmed the closure of some of our most significant news and current affairs programming including Sunday, two 1News bulletins and the total loss of Newshub. Hundreds of journalists will be out of jobs and with nowhere to go, it will be increasingly difficult for New Zealanders to access quality news and the ripples of these closures mean there are more dark days to come. Duncan Greive reacts to the week's devastating closures, asking how is it we are all just sitting here letting this pillar of democracy cave in?

    Is what's happening to news all advertisers' fault?

    Is what's happening to news all advertisers' fault?

    There's an idea so pervasive that it almost doesn't get questioned in media: that media agencies – the people who place ads on behalf of most big advertisers – are largely staffed by 25-year-olds who only consume social media. There is some truth to that – but it's more complicated than it appears. Alex Radford and Richard Thompson run an independent media agency named D3, and join Duncan Greive to break down how media buying works, and the ways the search and social giants' products eat budgets – including a revealing view into the black box that is the Google ad tech stack.

    After a lifetime on stages and screens, a new Mountain

    After a lifetime on stages and screens, a new Mountain

    Rachel House might be just shy of a household name, but is definitely one of our most acclaimed and accomplished actresses, with key roles on what amounts to a role call of New Zealand's greatest films: Whale Rider, Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Cousins and more. She's just directed her debut feature in The Mountain, and joins Duncan Greive on The Fold at the very end of a lengthy promotional tour for a very funny and very exhausted conversation about the experience.
