a little birdy told me ..........

That, after 11 years New Zealands finest interviewer, Sean Plunket is looking for greener pastures.

This is very bad news for RNZ, who without their biggest draw card, has a thin line of talent except, for the elegant gentleman broadcasterGeoff Robinson.

Plunket is likely to find it pretty easy to find a good home on New Zealand's increasingly sophisticated media landscape.

Perhaps the pies taste better elsewhere.

Well, it won't be Australia then.

Keys media advisor for the election campaign?

Please say yes.

He'd be privy to all the left wing tactics.

When will someone have the balls to sell off/close down State Radio??

I find it disgusting that all taxpayers have to fund the radio listening habits of one (ok, two) particular niche audiences. National and Concert Radio should have to compete on a commercial footing like every other type of radio format in New Zealand.

Why should one "elite" group have a taxpayer-funded ad-free Classical Music station, while taxpayers who prefer to listen to retro/rock/dance/r&b music have to put up with ads and commercial promotions?

Sean has pulled out of the InternetNZ debate with the Pollies on TNVZ7 - at short notice. Maybe something to those rumours!
