NZ On Air funding

From the NZ On Air website:
Radio New Zealand is the national public radio service. Its flagship networks - Radio New Zealand and Radio New Zealand Concert - are Funded by NZ On Air.

Radio New Zealand National

Broadcasting 24 hours a day, Radio New Zealand National reaches almost every New Zealander. Its programme mix includes news and current affairs, documentaries and features, drama and music. At least 33% of the music it broadcasts is New Zealand in origin.

Radio New Zealand Concert

Radio New Zealand Concert is Radio New Zealand's fine music network. Music comprises 85% of air time. Much of this is classical, with additional specialist music programmes covering jazz, contemporary and world music.
In 2009/10, Radio New Zealand received $31,816,000 in funding from NZ On Air, up from $31,718,000 in the previous year. A small amount of additional funding and $1.9 million from the Ministry of Culture and Heritage to run Radio New Zealand International brings to total to $34,236,000. The rest of the broadcaster's revenue, $3,818,000, is earned by Radio NZ itself, from interest, fees for co-location on its transmission high-sites and other sources.
