Rob Bastille is a regionally renowned photojournalist and founder of Hyannis News…

… and was raised right here in Hytown, the Hub of Cape Cod!

Rob’s main desire and mission is to simply document and share spot news scenes with media consumers everywhere.

Rob thoroughly enjoys sharing “good” news, but will not shy away from reporting the stark realities, issues, and ongoing problems his readers need to know about.

Recognizing many Cape Codders voicing a strong need for unflinching local news coverage, Rob founded (HN), which has been around off and on since 2007… eventually becoming a full-time news gathering service in February of 2013.

HN’s basic philosophy is “the truth is the best disinfectant,” since we cannot fix our problems without first knowing they exist.

HN footage is frequently tailored and sold to TV News broadcasts, locally and around the globe!
