Reardon topic of talk

A radio interview about The Herald’s recent reporting on Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon is set to air from 4 to 5 p.m. Friday on Everett’s KSER 90.7 FM.

“Sound Living” host Ed Bremer is to ask Herald writers Scott North and Noah Haglund about their reporting that linked Reardon’s staff to harassing public records requests and attack websites targeting the executive’s political foes.
