A New Generation of Ad Men
The word of advertising is changing.  A landscape once dominated by print and television is being redefined by the internet and other emerging technologies.  Companies now have mere seconds to grab your attention before you click through to another webpage or close an app on your tablet or smart phone. Host Cathy Lewis is joined by three local innovators and advertisers who are changing the way we consumers interact with the myriad of companies who are vying for our attention or more specifically, our money.  We'll also discuss
the new Google film "Project RE:Brief", that highlights the challenges of taking classic ad campaigns into new digital territory, and also features several of today's guests.

Hunting: A Sport of the Past?

Posted by: perry 7/18/2012 7:04 PM

Hunting: A Sport of the Past?
For generations, most young Virginia males came of age in the woods hunting deer and other animals; killing your first buck or skinning your first rabbit was a rite of passage. But interest in hunting has been declining in our state for the past two decades as farmland becomes scare and young people choose indoor gaming over the real thing. On this special encore edition of HearSay, we bring you one of our programs that took home "Best Human Interest Series" at this year's Virginia Association of Broadcasters awards. The program originally aired in March 2011.  Host Cathy Lewis talks with hunting enthusiasts about the legacy of their sport and its possible future.

Program Guests:
William W. "Tex" Sadler - Former President, Virginia Deer Hunters Association

Matt O'Brien - Hunter, Content Editor for foremosthunting.com, Host, "Foremost Outdoor Television"

Marriage: Forever & Ever?

Despite the recent high-profile breakups of prominent political couples, American marriages are showing strong numbers these days. Our divorce rates are leveling off and new census statistics show that our marriages are lasting longer. On Tuesday's HearSay, we'll examine these new, and some would say surprising, trends in American marriages. We'll also talk about the struggles facing long-term marriages today and why some fail, while others survive.
