The Top Writers Radio Show goes out on community access radio station Fresh FM.
The shows began in 2016. In 2017 the first season of six shows ran between April and June. The second season will run from August to November. The shows go out fortnightly, and are first broadcast on Saturdays at 3 pm, then repeated on
Mondays at 11 am.
The programmes are presented by Gaelynne Pound. Each one begins with a PEN section from Dana Wensley, who is the PEN (NZ) representative for freedom of expression, focusing on a particular author or issue. The main part of the show consists of an interview with a local published writer.
In 2016 Dana Wensley was the sole presenter. For 2017 she handed over this role to Gaelynne in order to concentrate on her Freedom of Speech work for PEN, but she continues to present the PEN item at the start of each show.
