New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) is the number one Kiwi podcast network in in the latest Triton Digital New Zealand Podcast Ranker, a position it has continuously held since the first Ranker two years ago.
NZME has seen just shy of 100% growth in original content downloads since the start of the year, more than 7.4 million monthly podcast downloads and a monthly listenership of more than one million.
NZME’s Head of Digital Audio, James Butcher said:
“The ongoing success of our podcast network demonstrates NZME’s commitment to delivering engaging, high quality and innovative content that resonates with our diverse audiences. We’re reaching over 1 million kiwis a month regardless of what platform they are listening on which is great to see.”
NZME podcasts hold eight of the top ten spots with Mike Hosking Breakfast first, followed by ZM’s Fletch, Vaughan and Hayley, and Heather du Plessis-Allan Drive fourth. Audioboom’s Australian Casefile True Crime is third.
Local is dominant. Hamish and Andy’s podcast is the only other Australian in the top 20. In all there were 7 non-NZ podcasts in the top 20 with the US Stuff You Should Know and UK No Such Thing as a Fish and On Purpose with Jay Shetty in similar positions to the Australian ranker.
