ROLE / ORGANISATION
New Zealand Broadcasting School
Dr Brendan Reilly is currently the radio course leader at the New Zealand Broadcasting School in Christchurch, New Zealand. The focus of his research and publications is investigating how media has been reflecting or reinforcing national culture, particularly commercial radio’s role in promoting local identity in the face of overwhelming cultural content and control coming from two main centres of production: the US and the UK. His teaching areas include media history, audiences and futures. He is still a casual announcer on The Breeze, a local commercial radio station.
