Actualities & Newslines


A radio actuality is a group of sound bites sent out to radio stations to be used in news reports. Each file is a small collection of quotes on various subjects, with a short pause between each separate quote. Sometimes the transitions sound a little odd – keep in mind the sound bites are intended to be used individually.
