Every Easter, we produce 14 hours of special Easter programming for Newstalk ZB - 12 hours on Good Friday and 2 hours on Easter Sunday.

EASTER

On Good Friday 2021, our team produced 12 hours of special programming for Newstalk ZB between 6am and 6pm. We broke it down into four three-hour talkback shows with a mix of tandem and solo hosts. 

6-9am: Peter Wolfkamp and Tash McGill

9am-12pm: Petra Bagust

12-3pm: Sam and Julia Bloore

3-6pm: Rev Frank Ritchie and Jax van Buuren

Sprinkled throughout the programming were 60-90 second pieces of production which we had written, recorded and mixed. We also ran a virtual easter egg hunt, with clues delivered every half hour. 

FEEDBACK FROM LISTENERS

"I'd like to congratulate management on this afternoon Good Friday's session. I rarely listen to Newstalk ZB and found it almost incredible that a mainstream media station should be sensitive enough to acknowledge how important Good Friday is to so many throughout the world - and has been for over 2000 years - and to to feature such good guest commentators.Congratulations to the station - and thanks to those who produced this programme of real quality and historical accuracy."

"Oh. That is so good. I am always listening, day and some of night. Special days like Easter and Christmas are so interesting. I never feel lonely because all of you are such good company. Thanks so much." MM
