Title The evolution of news on Spanish radio. “Authored” news reports and listener opinion Summary The purpose of this paper is to analyse the gradual incorporation of analysis and opinion into radio news reporting, an area previously dedicated exclusively to transmitting news. A study of news programmes on Spanish radio reveals the widespread use of interpretive introductions by presenters and the incorporation of sections dedicated to political analysis. The report also confirms growing influence amongst listener and internet user, who via email and social networks are able to ensure their opinions are reflected in news bulletins. We are therefore seeing a process of great change in radio news as it has a previously unheard of hybrid status bestowed upon it, the epitome of which is the real-time incorporation of listener opinion into news programmes. Keywords Information, Internet, opinion, participation, radio, social networks
