Haslam replaces curated daily news summary with Web feed

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — For decades, the Tennessee governor's office has assembled a carefully curated daily summary of political and government news from around the state. No longer.

Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's office announced on the day before the long Memorial Day weekend that the news summary had "outlived its usefulness."

In its place, the governor's office has created an automated RSS feed of Google searches and news stories released by broadcast and print outlets around the state.

While the old summary contained abbreviated versions of stories of specific interest of policymakers, scope of the new feed is not limited.

On Thursday, the subjects among the hundreds of stories on the feed included the music lineup at Bonaroo, the disappearance of holes in Swiss cheese and a baby gorilla born at the Knoxville Zoo.
