Phyllis Fletcher, managing editor of the Northwest News Network, has been selected as the inaugural recipient of PRNDI’s Editor of the Year award.

 

PRNDI is celebrating 2017 as the “Year of the Editor.” The editor of the year award is designed to recognize an individual who exemplifies the very best in story editing and newsroom leadership.

The two-day PRNDI/NPR Editor Training and the two-day News Manager Training session at this year's Miami conference have now filled up.  There are no more seats available in either of those sessions.  

There are still seats available in the Environmental Field Trip, Moneyball Your Reporting w ith Brian Mann, and Beyond Radio: Telling Stories Online and on Social Media with Al Tompkins. 

Seating in all of our pre-conference training sessions is limited, and on a first-come, first-served basis.  All pre-conference sessions require a confirmation code before you can register.

Just added to the PRNDI Conference schedule! Environmental reporting field trip: Learn about everglades ecology and Miami sea rise. It'll be a valuable, hands-on experience for any journalist interested in reporting on climate change and how urban centers respond to changing sea levels. 

This trip will introduce reporters to the environmental issues in the Everglades and also an understanding of how the city of Miami is dealing with sea level rise. Breakfast and lunch are included.

"PRNDI? What's that? Our station has never sent anyone before. Why should we spend the money now?"

“Is PRNDI just like every other conference I’ve been to where people are still trying to figure out diversity and millennials?”

"My boss says I'm not the news director...why should they send me to PRNDI?"
