As i'm based in Luzon near Manila this station is great for all political updates and commentary on the incumbent govt . Especially Barry and Heather at the lunchtime rural program with Jamie .
Of course most ZB hosts are anti Labour. Just listen to monologues or interviews.
I love love listening to Simon and James in the afternoon show
Ignore the silly left-wing comments this is not a right-wing station at all, it sits very centre un-biased. The National Party was in the crosshairs previously with its former leadership problems. New Zealand sadly lacks a press that brings the Labour Government to account and some great questions are asked of them. The PM now no longer turns up for interviews with the station which says more about her lack of accountability to New Zealand's most popular breakfast show than the show's balance. Balance starts with asking the right questions of all parties, especially the government so get over it that's what democracy is.
Right wing views 24/7 with no reasoned debate or openness to anything positive regarding Labour or the Greens. If you HATE Jacinda Ardern then this is the station for you. Disappointing lack of balance
I don't listen to ZB to just hear what I agree with - I want to hear unbiased, intelligent discussions and opinions backed up by facts - it's my go to!!!
Living in cairns Australia what a way to keep up to date with the home land
You can tell these people have never struggled a day in their lives, they care more about being callous than about their fellow humans
Sadly I've stopped listening to ZB Auckland. Was my radio station since about 1957. There are now only four announcers who listen to callers and are fair in their replies. - Simon Barnett, Phil Gifford, Marcus Lush and Jack Tame.
Hey there, I don't know the lady's name that is on right now but I absolutely Love her comments just now!!! Fantastic to hear a strong, intelligent, open minded women on the air!! Please keep up the good work!
