When Lorville was founded in 2912, many of the arriving workers relied on a small improvised workers union operated radio studio called “Matter” for their updates on the rest of the ‘verse. However, as some of the stories put out by the “Matter” studio reported on Hurston Dynamics’s alleged ethic inconcistency and deviating tax practice, the company had no choice but to acquire the studio. Official records show the owners of the studio accepted a non-disclosed monetary deal and turned it over in 2923.
Whilst enduring heavy protests from the workers, Hurston Dynamics rebuilt the studio to focus on imagery instead of radio. Hurston employees continued to report the news under the studios new name, the “Hurston Broadcast Network”. And in order to avoid further protests, Magda Hurston signed the “Independant Media company order” in 2924, stating that any and all image production coming out of the “Hurston Broadcast Network” must be produced by independant media outlets.
Hurston Dynamics has been broadcasting the news to it’s workers for a long time, but since signing Oliver Zark and Zark Media to produce the news show “Stanton Today” in 2949, the Hurston Dynamics news segment is slowly reaching for the rest of the population in Stanton, establishing itself as a serious and trustworthy news outlet.
