About

The Ruapehu Daily

Project 2022-01-23 14:38:19 +1300

A journalist since 2005, I moved to Ruapehu three years ago, after years abroad, having adventures and working in media, education, non-government organisations, projects and documentary.

I love the beauty, the quiet, the maunga, the whenua, the awa, the mana whenua and the strong bonds of community Ruapehu offers.

Some of you may know me from my time working for local government in Community Engagement. I really value the conversations and connections I made over that time. And I feel priviledged I was able to be of service to the community within that framework.

 After 18 months at Council I was called back to my roots of research, communications and media. 

You'll currently hear me doing The Ruapehu Daily update on TrunkFM , Monday to Friday at 9:30am, and I'm a Host of the Seriously Outdoors Rural Roundabout on Saturday Mornings. I also sometimes help out at the Taumarunui Koriki Community Trust supporting the incredible team  in their mahi.

During the pandemic, it has become clear, that a lack of daily news covering Ruapehu communities has lead to misinformation, miscommunications or delays in essential information getting out in a timely matter.

And that is why I'm doing this.

I feel my  Journalism skills can be of service to the wellbeing of Ruapehu during these days of Omicron with The Ruapehu Daily.

We as a community not only deserve but need daily updates during omicron to support and care for one another with clear concise and verified information. 

A update with the Daily Ruapehu will fill that gap and help us help ourselves during the pandemic.

I need your support to make that happen. 

This is stage one of what will be multi step approach to ensure the updates from the Ruapehu Daily can continue throughout the pandemic.

Stage two will be approaching local businesses to sponsor updates and over time to build on what we cover and why.

I want to acknowlege our two cracking weekly papers but in our current situation we need a daily update so we can care for one another and protect our local health providers and essential workers. 

Thank you for helping me get this endevour up and running so we have  the latest information to ensure our communities' wellbeing during Omicron.

Nga Mihi,

Neesha
