WIL Will Scoop 'em Now With 'Newscasts'

A broadcast service that will keep the public informed of all the latest local news has been resumed by WIL after three years intermission.
Two prominent newspapermen are identified with the new “air newspaper.” They are Bill Bradley, former managing editor with the Times, stationed at police headquarters, and Clem Hurd, son of Carlos Hurd, who is county reporter.
With complete coverage of important local news, WIL is now able to broadcast important events direct from the scene over the mobile transmitter. Even prior to the use of the mobile transmitter on the broadcasts three years ago, prominent scoops were brought to the public hours ahead of the newspapers.
