Ashland gets new news source to replace defunct newspaper

Ashland is not a big city, but it is a vibrant one... the kind of town where people expect local news to be covered. And with the demise of The Daily Tidings--folded into The Mail Tribune in Medford--there is no professional news operation focused solely on events and issues just in Ashland.

A former Tidings editor is about to step into the gap, with the creation of Ashland.News.

Bert Etling has the backing of a local board, and an experienced journalist or two to get the operation started.

Bert joins us for a chat about the plans for the site, accompanied by board member Herbert Rothschild.
