Where do you put commas?

What about abbreviations, is it GA or Ga?

And what about numbers, do you write eleven or 11?

Ack! How are you supposed to know, you're a radio reporter?!?! 

Well, here's where Mercer University's Adam Ragusea can help. Adam held a PRNDI webinar giving basic tips and general guidance on how to move a script from one medium to another.

You can watch Adam's webinar here.

  We're getting ready for St. Louis - and you should, too!!  Your PRNDI board has been hard at work getting the conference schedule put together, and we're very excited about the opportunities you'll have at this year's conference.

  The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) and Public Radio News Directors Incorporated (PRNDI) are proud to offer a deadline extension for this year's entries for the Excellence in Consumer Financial Reporting Award to be presented at the PRNDI Annual Conference in St. Louis in June of 2016.

  Did Super Tuesday mean you completely missed the PRNDI Annual Awards deadline of midnight on March 1?  Well, you're in luck!  The PRNDI Board has voted to extend the deadline (with an additional extension fee added to the pricing) for BOTH the PRNDI Annual Awards AND the NEFE/PRNDI Excellence in Consumer Finance Award.

Have you or has someone you know been working in a one-person shop and been in public radio less than a year? Well, PRNDI is offering one conference scholarship to just such a person.

The scholarship covers conference registration and $500 toward hotel and travel.

Judging PRNDI award entries as a group is an excellent opportunity for team-building and flexing editorial muscle in your newsroom. 

  • Steal story ideas! 
  • Have frank conversations about writing and story structure without making anyone cry!! 
  • Build a better vocabulary for talking about what works and what doesn’t!!!

If your newsroom would like to adopt an awards category, please contact Christine Paige Diers, cpaigediers@gmail.com.

The 2016 conference to take place June 24-25 in St. Louis will draw more than 100 public media news managers from all across the country, as well as network and station-based editors, reporters, producers, and leaders. For many, it will be the only conference they attend this year. If you want to make an impression on them, the PRNDI conference is the place to do it!
