Radio New Zealand news boss Don Rood has stepped down after 31 years with the state broadcaster.

Rood said his position as Head of News had been disestablished and would be replaced with a new role, Head of Content, that would oversee content across news, current affairs, drama, features and music.

He decided not to apply for the new position but was coy on the reason why.

''That's a story for another day,'' he said.

Rood spent the past ten years as Head of News at Radio New Zealand.

During his time, the station remained committed to high standards of broadcasting and produced a number of fantastic journalists, he said.

''That's why we're number one.''

He was not yet sure what his next move would be.
