Stan Murrowood retires after 53 years behind the mic

The dulcet tones of Stan Murrowood will no longer be heard on ABC Radio Hobart following his retirement today.

Stan began his radio career at 3AW in 1967, and he told Leon Compton that news bulletins then were completely different than those broadcast today, “There were no inserts as we call them today, no little comments from people and recorded reports from correspondents etc, …it was five minutes of totally read news and a weather forecast on the end of it.”
He said that changes in technology and consumer tastes has also changed the direction of news over the years, “More consumers stories have come along, there’s a greater emphasis on disasters and things that go wrong. Political scandals seem to attract people attention more these days than they did way back when.”
