Hear-Abouts

Hear-Abouts

 

There's always been a 'magazine section' to HTN, originally on the 2nd side of the news tape. As the whole project took off it became clear that listeners liked the general interest items enough to give it a life of it's own. After starting with the accurate but slightly uninspired title of 'The Magazine', when Lesley and Francis Scott-Stapleton picked up the editorial reins they renamed it 'Hear-Abouts'. Lesley is still editor-in-chief with an overlapping/individual team of contributors, readers and production staff. Some items are selected from publications but many are Hear-Abouts originals - with the annual Christmas edition being especially looked-forward to. Articles include a focus on local history and surroundings plus items of special interest to the sight-impaired.

The switch to digital recording allows the latest edition of Hear-Abouts to be included on the same 'stick' as the news recording.
