About Hard News
Russell Brown's Hard News began life in 1991 as a weekly news and media commentary on Auckland radio station 95bFM, and stayed that way for 11 years, until Russell retired the radio slot with this final bulletin in September 2002.
Hard News has been available in various forms on the Internet since 1996, including the official Hard News mailing list. The list continues to operate in support of Hard News' new identity as a weblog at PublicAddress.net. An archive of many Hard News posts is here.
