A tribute to the life and influence of Island Free Press editor and co-founder Irene Nolan was broadcasted on Radio Hatteras on Sunday, March 5, during the time slot of her regular “To The Point” radio show.
“To The Point” was first introduced on September 7 in 2014, just six months after Radio Hatteras started broadcasting. Irene launched the endeavor as a new way to reach the community, and she brought to her interview show the same journalistic integrity that was the hallmark of the Island Free Press.
The show was used as a platform to tackle a number of topics that were essential to the community, such as the continuing beach access issues, or information on local organizations / projects that made the islands better.
Irene’s rise in the journalism world, as well as her influence in the community, is outlined in detail during the broadcast through stories told by a number of local residents and friends.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore Superintendent Dave Hallac, President of the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association Bill Smith, GeeGee Rosell of Buxton Village Books, Hatteras Island writer Natalie Kavanagh and former Dare County County Commissioner Alan Burrus are all featured in the broadcast, and they stories and memories of how Irene made the island a better place.
