[pima.nius] Pacific Broadcaster Tom Etuata Passes Away in Auckland

5:11 PM |

The Pacific Islands Media Association team would like to extend its condolences to the family of Tom Etuata, CEO of Radio 531 PI and Niu FM, after he passed away in Auckland on Saturday.
 
This is a very sad loss for the Pacific communities in New Zealand, especially the Niuean community. His passing will also leave a huge gap in Pacific broadcasting.

In 2009 Tom was appointed CEO of the Pacific Media Network Trust which runs both the nationwide Radio Niu FM and Auckland's Radio 531pi. He was committed to a quality news service for the Pacific communities in New Zealand as well as for the region.

The son of Reverend Tom Etuata senior, Tom was not only active in the Niuean community but he also played a key role in the promotion of various Pacific events including the prestigious Pacific Music Awards.

He was well known for his commitment to a healthy lifestyle and held the position of Secretary-General for South Pacific Bodybuilding Federation as well as being involved with the Samoan Sports Awards.

 
Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom's family and work colleagues at this sad time.
 
Kia Monuina and Fakaue Lahi Tom
 
The team from PIMA
