Media Merger NEW name competition

Hmmmm name for the NZ Media Merger.....

Hmmmm a new name for the NZ Media Merger…..

Fairfax and NZME intend to merge. They need our help coming up with their new name. We have already been treated to the very memorable name ‘Newshub’ so let’s get cracking on merging the different names together.

NZME is the  publisher of the New Zealand Herald and Fairfax Media is the publisher of and New Zealand newspapers including the Dominion Post, The Press and the Waikato Times.

So these are the names that we can merge to create the new company. To make it easier for your creative juices to flow I have listed them below.

We need to merge the below A) names with the B) names below



New Zealand Herald


Fairfax Media

Dominion Post

The Press

The Waikato Times

To get you all started here are a few of my suggestions…

The New Zealand Ferald

    It looks to me that the only things making any money are the NZME radio stations and the Stuff web site. So once all the deck chair shuffling is done the life boat will only have room for those and the rest will be left floating around in a very cold sea with flimsy life jackets and hungry sharks. On this basis NZStuffME looks like the only option. I note that they all like to report financial results in EBITDA terms – in other words, Operating Profit. I bet the actual bottom lines are not good……..

      Our cod n chips in Amberley tonight had White newsprint inside but yesterday’s Press on the outside – some traditions haven’t totally disappeared!

    The “truth”?

  • WBC


    It completely disregards the brief, and is not even accurate in it’s own description of what it will be. Rather it is made up on a whim with a dogged refusal to do the briefest of fact checking or a glance at a thesaurus.

    Hence it is the perfect handle for whatever it is they are supposed to be doing these days.
