Athens News Matters: 'Beyond the Trestle' Offers New Take on Sports Journalism

A group of former Athens Banner Herald writers have teamed up to cover sports with a unique, informed and sometimes nostalgic take. "Beyond the Trestle" editors Johnathan McGinty and Joe van Hoose join Athens News Matters producer Martin Matheny for a conversation.

Martin Matheny is WUGA's Program Director and a host and producer of our local news program 'Athens News Matters.' He started at WUGA in 2012 as a part-time classical music host and still hosts WUGA's longest-running local program 'Night Music' which is heard on WUGA and GPB Classical. He lives in Normaltown with his wife, Shaye and dog, Murphy.
