Friday N.H. News Roundup: The Exchange's 20th Anniversary

The archive of Exchange shows from before 2001 or so is stored on DATs (digital audio tapes). This tape is from 12/18/97 - the day after the Claremont ruling.

It's our Friday New Hampshire News Roundup - but this hour, instead of the week's headlines, we'll look back over the past two decades. That's because today is The Exchange's 20th birthday. On October 9th, 1995, NHPR kicked off this new program, which remains New Hampshire's only state-wide call-in show. So to celebrate we're pulling from the archives and reflect on some of the biggest stories we've covered.


  • Jeff Feingold - editor of the New Hampshire Business Review
  • Dean Spiliotes - civic scholar in the School of Arts and Sciences at SNHU, an author of the website
  • Scott McPherson - Vice President of Operations and Finances at NHPR. He was The Exchange's first producer, twenty years ago.

Here's a video marking our 15th anniversary, which happened in 2010:
