In an effort to raise journalistic ambition and expertise across the public media system, representatives from NPR, PRX, PRNDI and member stations want more information about how newsrooms are serving their audiences.

Equipment Follow-up - Lessons from the Field

Aug 30, 2018

I recently wrote an article for PRNDI about recording and photographing in the field. If things would have gone as anticipated, it would have been a stellar article. Things did not go as planned.

The assignment was to do a piece about the centennial of the reintroduction of elk to Michigan. I was determined to do the story AND get great audio of bull elk “bugling” for mates and photographs of elk. Sometimes the best of plans go awry.

Equipment: It's Not Just About the Audio

Aug 28, 2018

A few days ago, Lester Graham of Michigan Radio posted to facebook about the equipment he was preparing for an upcoming story he was covering.  We were intrigued and asked him to share his insights with our members.

I follow NPR reporter Don Gonyea on Instagram. Occasionally, he’ll arrange all the equipment he takes on the road on his dining room table and take a photo. I like looking over the recorders, microphones, cables, etc.

To me, everyone’s kit bag is a fingerprint of that reporter’s priorities, preparedness and equipment-failure paranoia.

NPR, PRX, PRNDI and member station representatives from Minnesota Public Radio and St. Louis Public Radio brought the Culture of Journalism discussion to PRPD’s Public Radio Content Conference this month in Austin.

For almost two years now, President Trump and members of his administration have chosen to vilify journalists for doing their jobs. The President has on several occasions branded journalists “the enemy of the people,” and labeled their accurate and ethical work “fake news.”  The ongoing rhetoric has launched a dangerous trend in our country where the work, credibility and even the physical safety of journalists are being threatened. It is harmful not just to journalists, but to the public as well; it threatens the public’s right to be well-informed citizens.

Mark your calendar now to attend the 2019 annual PRNDI Conference.  We'll be in Washington DC at the Grand Hyatt located at 1000 H Street NW.  

The PRNDI board and staff will be meeting in early November to begin planning the details of next year's conference, but we know you won't want to miss it.
