Love Talk

EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Today: Tomorrow (Thursday 10th) NZME’s Radio Hauraki is dedicating the day to Kiwi men’s mental health by bringing back No Talk Day. And they’ve created a droll tvc that sends a potent message (scroll down for the credits).

On Hauraki tomorrow (which is World Suicide Prevention Day), all advertising, traffic, weather and news will be silenced. Radio Hauraki’s announcers will symbolically create space for listeners to talk, by not talking themselves.

Hauraki content director Mike Lane said: “We ran our first No Talk Day last year and were stunned at the positive feedback we received.

“Hauraki will be supported by a multi-platform campaign across NZME brands including the Herald in print + online.”

“The video the team produced reached nearly 800,000 impressions across Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

“The backing from prominent New Zealanders and Kiwis involved in suicide prevention and mental health support was incredible. The Black Caps even created and shared their own version.”

Movember NZ’s Robert Dunne said: “The support from Radio Hauraki last year was brilliant and we’ve very happy to partner with the team again.”

Radio Hauraki’s No Talk Day will also be supported by a multi-platform campaign across NZME brands including the New Zealand Herald in print and online.
