All Things New Hampshire: Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014
As part of my job at NH1 News, I review what's making headlines around the Granite State and nationally, and share that information with my colleagues as we go about planning our news coverage. We realized that it might be something you would enjoy as a one-stop shop for New Hampshire News-and so, welcome to the first edition of All Things New Hampshire.
