RNS was available with just a moment’s notice. The content was fresh and did not lack any stories of significance. The writing was complete as well as succinct. Our morning casts had energy, and a much needed “up” feel. The audio files always showed up on-time or early. They got our sponsors right and gave their copy the right feel. I was amazed at how little compromise there was with the RNS product and pleasantly surprised at how little their product needed to be managed at our end.Brian Wilson
