WNRN, Gateway Virginia headlines

So, I'n currently up to four days reading the news at WNRN, and am temporarily filling in as the news director here. This is a great challenge, and one that I'm enjoying. Who knew getting up at 4:00 could be so exciting?

In any case, this means I have returned to the experiment of the Gateway Virginia headlines. This is a proposed blog and podcast to provide a quick daily briefing of the news in western and Central Virginia. I've been tweaking it for a couple of months now, and the beta test will now increase to at least four days a week. Consistency is crucial if this is to become a viable media outlet, or media sub-outlet, or whatever.

Here's today's installment.

I'm looking for any and all feedback on this. I think this is a useful way to turn the work I do for WNRN into a podcast that could reach new audiences. I have to work on the delivery, and find the right pace, but I'm pleased that I can post these in a timely fashion. I have this done regularly by 6:30 AM.

We're also looking for news volunteers. If you'd like to learn how to read the news, please contact me and we'll get you trained.
