AUCKLAND, Today: NZME and Are Media (formerly Bauer Media) have teamed up in a new content-share deal, allowing NZ Herald Premium subscribers access to The Listener editorial.

As well as Premium access to selected journalism and commentary from The Listener, all Herald readers will be able to read lifestyle and entertainment content from the NZ Woman’s Weekly, Woman’s Day, Australian Women’s Weekly and Your Home & Garden.

NZME managing editor Shayne Currie said: “Are Media’s writers, columnists and commentators produce high-quality journalism across its current affairs and lifestyle publications.

“Our partnership means Premium subscribers and other readers will access great content directly on”

“It’s great to see media companies like Are Media relaunching these iconic titles.”

Are Media announced in July that it was returning to the NZ publishing market with a portfolio consisting of flagship titles The Listener, NZ Woman’s Weekly, Woman’s Day, and Australian Women’s Weekly NZ, along with home category leader Your Home & Garden and Air NZ Kia Ora magazine.

Are Media NZ GM Stuart Dick said: “We’re immensely proud to be bringing these titles back for our New Zealand readers.

“To be able to give even more Kiwis access to our journalism and stories through our partnership with NZME and the NZ Herald is very exciting.”

The Are-NZME syndication deal follows the launch of the Herald partnership with digital news publisher The Spinoff allowing journalism and content to be shared across both platforms’ audiences.

Michael Boggs: “It’s great to see media companies like Are Media relaunching these iconic titles. Media remains a tough and fiercely competitive business and we hope partnerships like this will help ensure journalism, in all its guises, has a robust and vibrant future.”
