Monday, Nebraska will have another resource for local news. The Nebraska News Connection (NNC) will offer timely stories on important social, economic and community issues that affect people across the state. The service is primarily supported by memberships, grants and gifts.

Nebraska News Connection founder, Lark Corbeil, says stories will be pursued based on the independent producer's judgment as to which stories are of the greatest significance and interest to statewide listeners.

"Outlets will receive a script or 'Web-ready story' by fax or email that you can edit as you see fit, and to access the audio clips, just download files from the Web page, or call the toll-free number to record the bites," she explained.

Yes, we actually can accommodate old-school! Print and online versions, with additional graphics, photos and some video are available on the website.

NNC senior producer, Mary Kuhlman Schuermann, will launch the news service, serving Nebraska media with a passion for civic journalism and public interest stories.

The service is free to all news outlets for unrestricted use, and more information about the service is available at the Website listed above. The audio clips available on the web page are digital quality, and broadcast scripts, as well as print/Web-ready content and other files are easily downloadable.

"To access the audio scripts and stories via the Web just go to and enter your account ID, which is near the top of this page," Corbeil added.

At launch, you will see some 'ever-greenish' stories. More timely news will commence Monday, January 2. We welcome your feedback and suggestions. As more funding is available, we'll be able to offer you more content. We will have a 6-minute national newscast available later in January, again, for your free and unrestricted use.

If you would like to add or change EMAILS or what you're receiving (broadcast, print and/or Web-ready versions of suggested scripts), please let us know at
