The Comox Valley Record is launching a podcast.
Exploring new storytelling tools, Off The Page is a weekly podcast with the goal to take a deeper look at the Valley community and stories spanning the area and Vancouver Island.
It is hosted by journalist Erin Haluschak along with special weekly guests, with a focus on going beyond the story on the page to learn more about people, innovators, local matters and more in the Valley.
The idea for the podcast was conceived by Haluschak and Record publisher Artur Ciastkowski, who says launching a podcast gives the paper an opportunity to connect with the larger community in a new, meaningful way.
“The format enables us to have a candid conversation and introduce you to members of our community without the word count constraints of a newspaper page,” he notes.
New episodes of Off The Page drop every Wednesday with the launch set for Jan. 26 and are available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and everywhere podcasts are heard.
