Narrators don't get to decide what they say

Any additional comments?

Narrators don't get to just make up how they're going to say things. Including credits. In fact, they get no say at all in the matter. So yes, while it's annoying that Alexander Quincy says his name before every article, I'm sure he's not just doing it because that's just what he feels like doing. He's most likely doing it because he's been told to read the article intros that way.

Alex Quincy is an egomaniac

Where does The Morning Read from The Wall Street Journal, February 25, 2016 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

No other narrator identifies himself at the beginning of EVERY chapter. Audible, make him stop! It's annoying.

What did you like best about this story?

The news. I like the reportage and the editorial comment.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

By announcing his identity at the beginning of EVERY topic.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes.

Any additional comments?

No
