Hot Sponsorship Properties
On Newstalk ZB, our International Correspondents ‘property’ is available for sponsorship for the first time in a while. Credits feature every weekday within the Paul Holmes Breakfast Network and Larry Williams Drive Network and over a 48-week sponsorship period, provides a value to a sponsor of $212,000.
Radio Sport has had a quite a year so far with sponsorship packages for the Cricket World Cup, Louis Vuitton/America’s Cup and the Rugby World Cup. To round off the year, New Zealand is hosting the World Netball Cup and has a sponsorship package for a client to link their brand with one of our favourite sports. The package includes trailers, preview and review credits as well as commentary credits and as this sporting event is happening at home, our out-costs are at a minimum. Consequently, this sponsorship is extremely good value.
For more details or if you’d like to view the updated proposals for ZB’s International Correspondents or Radio Sport’s World Netball Cup coverage (plus many more opportunities for sponsorship!), contact your Radio Bureau account manager as soon as you can. As with all our sponsorships, it’s first in… first served!

The 17-year-old from the western city of Kassel crashed the van through the wall of a shed containing around 1,000 birds and then returned to a nearby fairground where he was staying, according to a spokesman for the local police. The youth was arrested. Source: NZPA
