Sunday at Six with Frank and Jax

6-7.30pm, Sundays on Newstalk ZB

Each week our hosts Frank Ritchie and Jax van Buuren launch a talkback conversation from an event this week in history. This allows us to cover all sorts of topics from the frivolous to the sacred.

We don’t always talk explicitly about matters of faith, but our hosts are on the look-out for opportunities to inform and intrigue our listeners about who this Christian God is, and what his heart might be for humanity.

Real Life with
John Cowan

7.30-8pm, Sundays on Newstalk ZB

John interviews a different high-profile guest each week. The conversation goes deeper than what they would be known for, exploring our guests’ upbringing, their views on the world, and where appropriate their views on faith.

 

Quite apart from the testimonies delivered by individual guests, simply having those conversations in the public sphere establishes faith as a core part of many people’s lives that is worthy of further investigation.

Christmas

Christmas Day on Newstalk ZB

Since 1996 Newstalk ZB has given CBA at least 12 hours of airtime every Christmas Day. Whilst every Christmas broadcast is unique, we tend to draw on many of the same experienced broadcasters every year like Ian Grant, Petra Bagust, Frank Ritchie, Dayna Vawdrey and Rob Harley.

We’re also always looking to develop younger talent and come up with bold and creative ways to tell the greatest story ever told afresh.

 

Some of those creative productions have even won local and international radio awards.

Check out our highlights from Christmas 2020 here.

Easter

Good Friday on Newstalk ZB

Since 1996 Newstalk ZB has given CBA 12 hours of airtime every Good Friday, typically simulcast on Radio Sport.

Whilst every Easter broadcast is unique, we tend to draw on many of the same experienced broadcasters every year like Rev Frank Ritchie, Petra Bagust and John Cowan.

We’re also always looking to develop younger talent and come up with bold and creative ways to tell the greatest story ever told afresh.

Short-form spots

We provide a range of short-format seasonal and topical specials to radio stations all over the country. The aim is to provide uplifting and positive content for NZ radio. Even when the tracks aren’t explicitly “Christian” there’s often an undercurrent of a faith-infused worldview.

Current affairs

Many of the tracks we provide are in response to news and current events.

For example, on the morning of the death of Sir Paul Holmes in 2013, we put together a montage using his interview on Real Life with John Cowan. That same afternoon, radio stations all over the country were playing the track in tribute to the late Sir Paul.
