SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokesman-Review and RadioSpokane, the Spokane arm of Mapleton Communications, Inc. today announced that they will be modify their news programming on RadioSpokane's KJRB-AM 790.

Since April 2008 a radio-production unit at The Spokesman-Review has been producing hourly news updates at the bottom of the hour from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The reports emanate from a studio in The Spokesman-Review building in downtown Spokane, under the direction of Editor/Reporter Dan Mitchinson. Those reports will cease on July 3. On July 6, KJRB will start reporting directly, on the hour at 6 a.m., 7 a.m, 8 a.m., noon, 4 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. using its own staff and news feeds provided by the newspaper's website, spokesman.com. The new arrangement modifies the news-production terms of a two-year agreement whose general provisions extends through March 2010.

The announcement of the changes was made jointly by Ron Hren, market Manager of RadioSpokane, and Shaun O'L. Higgins, Director of Sales and Marketing for The Spokesman-Review.

 "We are delighted that our news reports will continue to be powered by The Spokesman-Review, which gives us access to the largest news-gathering force in the Inland Northwest," said Hren. "It means our listeners will have a reliable and respected local news reports throughout the day."

"From our viewpoint, we are glad that we will continue to find our news disseminated over KJRB so our readers-and many non-readers, as well-can have access to updated information throughout the day," Higgins said.

In addition to the KJRB news broadcast, the companies will explore additional ways to work together, on a non-exclusive basis, to support one another's community sponsorships and promotional outreach.

    Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Wednesday, July 18 2018 1:48 PM EDT2018-07-18 17:48:19 GMT

Here's the gist, according to firefighters: Containment is essentially their faith in the strength of the fire line. So when they say there is a line around 100 percent of the fire, but 0 percent containment, it means they are concerned that the fire could jump the line.
