Listen while you read

Editors at the Sun-Star in Merced are now attaching audio interviews with reporters to select stories on their website. Here's a link where you can listen to an example, attached to an important local story they've been following for months.

I like the additional information, the background perspective and the fact that it makes the reporters more approachable. Is anybody else doing this? Any thoughts?

  1. I think that's great as along as a) it doesn't interfere with the reporting, as in making the subject nervous or unwilling to divulge information, and b) the audio clip is well-edited.
