From Mikey Havoc to 24-hour news via classic soul and 90s bangers - four new digital stations on iHeartRadio New Zealand offer something for everyone.

Havoc International Airport is a non-stop, 24-hour playlist of tracks selected and presented by Mikey Havoc.

"Havoc International Airport lets me play what I want - if I love it, you'll hear it," he says.

"I've wanted the opportunity to expose my listeners to all the music from all over the place; songs that have changed my life and are still blowing my mind, so it can do the same for them. These tunes simply deserve to be heard. All awesome. No duds. Tune in. Tell your friends."

Newstalk ZB 24/7 provides continuous coverage of the latest news and sports from the NZME newsroom. You'll never miss a headline again.

Coast Soul brings you the very best rhythm and blues songs from the 60s to today.

Curated by passionate soul fan Tim Roxborogh, the live show features on Coast from 6pm-8pm on Sunday, and iHeartRadio round the clock.

Roxborogh is thrilled about what the new station provides for listeners.

"There are classic soul stations around the world, modern R&B stations and smooth jazz stations. But there's very little that looks beyond eras and plays the best soul and R&B of the past 50 years like Coast Soul does.

"It's unique which is why Sunday's show resonates with listeners on Coast. The feedback has been fantastic so I am really excited to bring it to the iHeartRadio platform."

Following huge success as a weekday feature on The Hits, 90s Bus is a dedicated digital station playing the best bangers from the 90s.

iHeartRadio New Zealand continues to grow. It has more than 480,000 registered users and almost 643,000 app downloads with audiences listening for more than 2 million hours in July.

All of the new stations are available to stream on iHeartRadio now.
