RNZI celebrates its 20 year anniversary on January 24 2010. On that date in 1990 Radio New Zealand re-launched the short-wave service with a new 100kw transmitter and a dedicated team of RNZI staff. The name used for the short-wave service was Radio New Zealand International (RNZI).
On Sunday 24 January a special programme marking the last 20 years can be heard after the news at 0600, 0900, 1500 and 1900. This programme will be repeated during the breakfast session on Monday morning and will also be available on the website from next week.
