Research Overview

Associate Professor Margie Comrie is a Visiting Research Fellow at Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.

I am currently writing up research on the television coverage of New Zealand’s last general election and have been concentrating on two different aspects for different publications: the relationship between politicians and the media, and the particular contribution of Maori Television coverage.

Research Interests

My research interests centre on news media and public service broadcasting from a New Zealand perspective, political communication and citizen participation. As well as publications in international journals I have co-edited two influential books on the New Zealand media.

In the last five years I’ve worked in and led publicly funded community/university research teams investigating adult literacy and employment, and aspects of health communication.


My publications are listed on my staff profile at Massey University’s website (under learning/departments/School of Communication Journalism and Marketing)
