Calling all news junkies hungry for the scoop! Must be an early bird as this role involves 4am starts!


Newstalk ZB is looking for an experienced journalist to drive its breakfast news bulletins and nationwide team of reporters. You’ll need to be a master juggler; capable of keeping numerous, simultaneous tasks in order and be experienced in prioritising news stories. You’ll be a natural people leader as the role will see you liaising with, motivating, developing and growing a team.


You’ll be a dab hand when it comes to writing succinct radio copy, you have a polished radio ‘voice’ and are in your element being able to report live and unscripted. Above all you must be able to react quickly to and handle the pressure of breaking news – in fact it’s where you thrive.


In return we offer an environment that is diverse, inclusive and thriving. Our people are our biggest asset and we value them through reward & recognition and development & progression. We tell it like it is, challenge the status quo, we’re constantly innovating and we put audience first.
