This is the Northern Broadcasting Service, brought to you by The North Pacific’s Ministry of Communications. I am El Fiji Grande, and I am joined today by Brendog, Bobberino, Darcania, and MadJack. Today we will be discussing the General Elections, the recent flurry of activity in the Executive Staff, and the release of Issue XXVI of The Northern Lights. Before we get started, I'd like to note that participants in this news show are free to voice their opinion as they see fit. As such, the opinions expressed in this episode do not necessarily represent the Ministry of Communications or The North Pacific.
