Established in 1987, Radio Ngati Porou has a 28 year history of celebrating and promoting Ngati Poroutanga. Over those years we have extended our skills to include the best possible blend of communication services, that reflect the extent of the skill mix of the RNP team and the knowledge of communicating effectively with our audience.

Our strength is that we know our people and what, when and how they want to receive information. Underpinning all our work is the promotion of ‘te reo ake o Ngati Porou’.

Radio Ngati Porou continues to be a constant in the lives of most Ngati Porou and we strive to capture the ears, hearts and minds of all Naatis. We cover an area that has a population of nearly 44 thousand people, around 20 thousand being of Maori Heritage.

Our target audiences are the Ngati Porou East Coast residents, those of Ngati Porou descent and expatriate East Coast residents in Gisborne; a group we have identified through our research as numbering nearly 12 thousand people.

Although our broadcasts are predominantly for people of Ngati Porou, our content on many of our programs caters for the wider audience and all listeners in general.


Hono mai ki te reo o te iwi – ki a Radio Ngati Porou.
