This interview first aired on Tuesday the 28th of May, 2024 on ONE FM 98.5 Shepparton.

One FM fill-in breakfast announcer Plemo interviews Geoff Maynard from the Greater Shepparton Heritage Committee about the upcoming biennial Bruce Wilson Memorial Heritage Lecture.

The 2024 Lecture will be held at the Riverlink Eastbank, 70 Welsford Street, Shepparton on Wednesday 5 June 2024 across two sessions at 1pm and 6pm.

This year the topic of the Greater Shepparton Bruce Wilson Memorial Heritage Lecture will be ‘A town talks about itself: the heritage and future of country newspapers,’ presented by Ross McPherson AM, Chairman and Editor in Chief of the McPherson group of newspapers, and prominent community figure.

If the medium is the message how will our community conversation, first forged in the days of bullock drays and hand-set lead type, remain a cohesive influence in the era of algorithm-driven messages, artificial intelligence and social media distraction?

Come and hear veteran newspaperman Ross McPherson reflect on the history and value of local newspapers to rural areas, and the future for such publications in a rapidly-changing media environment.
