ARN has announced the next step of its regional news expansion plans with the launch of iHeart Tassie, a weekly news series focusing on the current issues impacting the Tasmanian community.
Produced and presented by Hobart 7HO Breakfast Newsreader Britt Aylen, the series can be heard each Friday morning across ARN’s Tasmanian stations, with each 20-minute episode also available as a weekly podcast.
The inaugural episode of iHeart Tassie is called “Tassie, The Roadkill Capital”, about the half a million animals that die on Tasmanian roads each year.
Britt Aylen said:
“I am honoured to be part of the iHeart Tassie news series. This platform allows us to bring attention to crucial local issues that deserve broader awareness and share local stories that matter to Tasmanians. Through in-depth investigation and storytelling, we aim to engage and educate our audience, fostering a stronger sense of community and understanding.”
iHeart Tassie follows the introduction of an extended local news bulletin and podcast in South Australia’s Spencer Gulf and Eyre Peninsula regions. These initiatives are part of ARN’s expansion plans across all regional markets.
