Why Noel Edmonds has launched an online radio network in New Zealand

A UK media icon, one of Britain’s most successful presenters across television and radio over five decades, Noel Edmonds is now a resident of New Zealand.
He says, “When I started to think about this country, which is now my homeland and how it will come out of the lockdown, I realized it‘s going to have some major challenges. I mean, the economy has been decimated. The tourist industry has been completely destroyed. So I thought; ‘Why don‘t we create a network of community radio stations online to promote New Zealand, to bring together communities and offer businesses the chance to communicate their offerings, and also support vulnerable people in society?’“
Creating the network in just six weeks, Edmonds says he’s found a positive local response. Positivity Radio includes three main stations serving the whole country, alongside a host of community stations.
