Audio Files, 1995-2008

 Series — Item: 145 Digital Files

Series Description

The Hagel Audio Files consist of 145 audio files from Hagel's U.S. Senate campaign in 1995-1996 and his two terms in office, 1997-2008. Recordings are a mix of Hagel's weekly conference calls with Nebraska media, speeches, press conferences, radio interviews, radio campaign ads, and misc. Hagel's weekly conference calls with the media--print, TV, and radio--take up the majority of the recordings. The calls were candid, on a variety of topics, and about 15-30 minutes each. Hagel opened each call with a statement and then answered questions. The call was a continuation of the tradition of his predecessor.
