    news talk

    When we pronounce the phrase 'news talk', do we change [z] sound in 'news' to [s] sound?

    Thank you.

    Within a minute after clicking the link, you will hear the introductory announcement in which an announcer pronounces it as 'new-s talk'.

    It sounds like 'newztalk' to me. Anyway, if you say 'newz', there is no reason to say 'newstalk'.
