Fair enough. I just thought it seemed odd for her to wear them in the studio when nobody else in the studio needed them. What to TV newsreaders do?

It's a different skill. You're projecting, rather than being on mic.
Hmmm - I don't get it really.
At the base and heart there is Checkpoint the radio show...
I can go to RNZ National web page and listen (with a small delay from radio)
I can also watch the radio show on a 'live feed' there
(Radio with pictures with a much longer delay to radio)
an experience which is akin to watching TV in the 1960s
- there is a certain Thunderbirds feel to it for some reason.
(apparently you can watch it on Freeview channel 50 as well, but that is not mentioned on the web page - though people might rather save their metered bandwidth use - dunno what the delay period is on there either)
Why do I have to see it?
I have to engage (tie up) another whole 'sense' and nothing was really added apart from an occasional photo of a burning boat early on - obviously the multi media platform is just to mop up eyes on devices, simultaneous connection is not really rewarded or needed - it all just seems to add a new layer of production and wardrobe costs to radio for little overall benefit. (am I better informed?)
First day I know, and I only engaged with the first hour - but I'm unconvinced with the need for multi-platform tv format, great to have John Campbell back as a conduit for sanity though.

At least one person found it more compelling.
Can't say I've shed a tear listening to a @radionz interview until now.
