    Will Auckland Airport avoid 'travel chaos' as school holidays get underway?

    Will Auckland Airport avoid 'travel chaos' as school holidays get underway?

    School holidays kick off tomorrow, and hundreds of families are set to take to the roads and skies to head off on vacation.

    For those of us travelling internationally though, the main hope is that the ongoing renovations at Auckland Airport won’t lead to the usual ‘travel chaos’ many of us have come to expect.

    So how are those developments going, and is the travel industry as a whole on the road to recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic?

    Today on The Front Page, business travel editor Grant Bradley is with us to discuss the latest in travel.

    TVNZ, Newshub confirm cuts as media industry faces an uncertain future

    Newshub is officially closing down.  

    Despite hopes of a last-minute lifeline, Warner Bros Discovery has confirmed all news operations will shut up shop from July 5th.  

    It comes as TVNZ also confirms its Midday and Tonight bulletins will end in mid-May, while Fair Go will shift to digital only.  

    So, with so many jobs going over the next three months, what does the future hold for news in New Zealand – particularly as trust falls to a new low?  

    Today on The Front Page, Media Insider Shayne Currie joins to give us the latest on an industry fighting for survival.  

    Today on The Front Page, Newstalk ZB reporter Azaria Howell discusses the challenges facing our public sector as departments race to cut spending.

    The latest on public service cuts - and if they'll apply to MP's pay

    The latest on public service cuts - and if they'll apply to MP's pay

    Government ministries are on a mission to cut spending by 6.5 to 7.5 per cent before the coalition Government’s first Budget next month.

    Finance Minister Nicola Willis has asked all departments to look for savings to “restore discipline” to taxpayer spending.

    For some agencies, cutting costs means cutting jobs – and that number is already at about a thousand roles, give or take.

    Today on The Front Page, Newstalk ZB reporter Azaria Howell discusses the challenges facing our public sector as departments race to cut spending.

    Columbine victim's father warns NZ as the government looks to alter gun laws

    Columbine victim's father warns NZ as the government looks to alter gun laws

    The coalition Government’s signalled “everything’s on the table” when it comes to a major shake-up of New Zealand’s gun laws.  

    The world praised us when we took swift action following the Christchurch terror attack – banning semi-automatic firearms and assault rifles.

    But now a coalition agreement between National and Act could see semi-automatics make a return to gun ranges.

    In the US, this month marks 25 years since the Columbine high school massacre – where two teenagers murdered 12 students and a teacher.

    15-year-old Daniel Mauser was one of those killed in the school’s library.

    Daniel’s father, Tom, has spent the last 25 years advocating for gun control in America – and he joins us on The Front Page to discuss why New Zealand shouldn’t be complacent when it comes to firearms.

    How Meta's latest policy on political content could change the game for democracy

    How Meta's latest policy on political content could change the game for democracy

    A new social media policy is being described as having a chilling effect on politics, and by extension the health of democracy.

    Meta, the global behemoth that owns Facebook and Instagram, is putting a stranglehold on recommendations in user feeds that contain political content.

    The move, signalled in February, applies to Instagram and Threads, and will eventually extend to Facebook.

    Today on The Front Page, Senior writer Derek Cheng joins us to look at what’s happening, why it’s happening, and how it changes the game for politicians.

    The debate over Daylight Saving Time in New Zealand

    The debate over Daylight Saving Time in New Zealand

    I’ve never met a person who actually knows anything about Daylight Saving Time, just that at some point we lose an hour, and at another point of the year we gain one.

    And no, it’s not Daylight Savings Time, either.

    We first introduced it nearly a hundred years ago in 1927 – and the current times have been fixed since 2007.

    In spring, we change our clocks forward 1 hour to New Zealand Daylight Time (NZDT). In autumn, we change our clocks back 1 hour to New Zealand Standard Time (NZST).

    Today on The Front Page, Take Back the Clocks spokesperson Connor Malloy joins us to discuss where Daylight Saving Time came from, and how we might be able to get rid of it.

Nice summary.

Snappy yet in-depth look into topical NZ stories

Love the 15-18 minutes of a story, gives well rounded views from a variety of experts, some in-house but others that I wouldn’t usually think Herald would showcase. Gives me enough information to have more of an informed discussion on what’s happening in NZ.

Really Dame Claudia?

So this land was a Maori country she says……
Interesting to know how she defines a country, it is indisputable that the land was inhabited by tribes who, prior to the “ land wars” had no concept of nationhood, no capital city, no legislature, etc etc, pretty much the same as most of Europe before the common era.
The current mania for distortion of this land’s history will ultimately be laughed at by generations to come, and Claudia and her kind will have their reputations shredded. Meanwhile us in the real world get on with life, each other and hope this divisive rabble purporting to represent Maori, and these do gooder academics will be moved on asap.
