Long-serving New Zealand On Air chief executive Jane Wrightson will be leaving the funding agency in January to take up a new role as the Retirement Commissioner. Jane has led NZOA for 12 years and transformed it from broadcast-focused local content to a strategic public media agency supporting a huge range of local content and music on many different platforms. Jane has overseen the funding of over 12,000 hours of screen content in her current stint, plus thousands of music videos and other media, and particularly championed three platforms: children's ad-free site HEIHEI, as well as NZ On Screen and sister site AudioCulture - lively ongoing showcases of NZ screen and music, and the Coconet.tv -connecting Pacific peoples with their roots. All the best with the new role Jane!
