Radio New Zealand says Newstalk ZB is three years too late in claiming to be the first radio broadcaster to use studio webcams.
Newstalk ZB yesterday announced the introduction of webcam broadcasts of The Paul Holmes Breakfast and Larry Williams Drive Show.
General manager of talk programming on The Radio Network, Bill Francis said the station's move to use studio webcams was the first of its kind in New Zealand.
However, RNZ spokesman John Barr today disputed the claim, saying they had used studio webcams for the Matinee Idle programme hosted by Phil O'Brien in 2005.
Mr Barr said the station had also experimented with the use of webcams and live streaming video for presentation from live music venues during the Music 101 programme.
