New Zealand iwi radio stations will be acknowledged this coming weekend in Rotorua at the annual Iwi Radio Awards.

Whakatāne's Tumeke FM is a finalist in nine of the twelve categories, including Best Breakfast Show, Best Talkback or Current Affairs show and Best Outside Broadcast.

Awards coordinator Karam Fletcher says the caliber of this year's submissions are impressive.

“It’s a great sign to see so many radio stations making it to the finals as well as the high caliber of each station.  I’ve had discussions with the judges and we’ve talked about how high the caliber is this year.  So I acknowledge all the Māori radio stations around the country.”
