Old-fashioned ‘dial a news’ is hung up

-A A +A
By Brent Schanding

Dial A News, the phone-based news service covering Spencer and Shelby counties since the 1960s, disconnected last week.

For no charge, callers could dial a local telephone number 24 hours a day and hear pre-recorded news briefs and advertising deals from their community.

The service was founded by Dean Harden and later purchased by Tom Hardin, a former WCND 940 AM radio personality whose voice gave callers the latest headlines for nearly the past 20 years.

A pre-recorded message from Hardin informed Dial A News callers last week of the service’s demise.
