Ways to Connect

WAMU in Washington, DC is searching to fill two positions: a Senior Producer  and a Producer Reporter for the Kojo Nnamdi Show.

The Conference is almost here and this year we’re offering Active Shooter Training for public radio newsrooms.

In every public radio newsroom across the country, editors play a critical yet often underappreciated role in raising the quality of journalism produced on a daily basis. That’s why PRNDI took steps last year to recognize the importance of this position by inaugurating the PRNDI Editor of the Year Award.

KUOW in Seattle has openings for five positions that seek to reshape delivery of daily news and breaking news coverage both on-air and through digital media. The station is hiring a Morning News Host, Morning Senior Producer and a Morning Reporter– as well as – an Afternoon News Host and Afternoon Senior Producer. 

The Society of Environmental Journalists Board of Directors is pleased to announce the next steps in searching for a new SEJ executive director.

KLCC-FM Eugene, OR has an opening for a News Director. Come lead a fantastic news team in Oregon's Southern Willamette Valley.

The News Director (ND) leads the planning, production and presentation of news on KLCC. This position helps define and maintain ethical, editorial, artistic and technical standards for broadcast news programs.

PRNDI is celebrating 2017 as “The Year of the Editor,” and there is no better way to bring that message home than to honor one of the finest editors working in public media today.  We are pleased to announce that Andrea de Leon is the 2017 recipient of the Leo C. Lee Award.

PRNDI is very excited to partner with member station WLRN on our annual conference set for June 23 & 24 in Miami at The Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort. Pre-conference training will take place June 21 & 22.

 

PRNDI gave John Barth the Leo C. Lee Award at our annual conference in St. Louis in June. Below is a transcript of the speech he gave at the ceremony.

 

Thank you George Bodarky and the PRNDI Board for this honor. It is very meaningful and I am extremely grateful…

We’re all excited about next summer’s PRNDI conference in Salt Lake City, but it’s already time to start exploring sites for the PRNDI conferences in 2016 and 2017.

Our conference this past summer in Washington, DC was a fantastic success.  In previous years we partnered with local member stations WCPN and Ideastream in Cleveland and KUHF in Houston for great conference experiences as well.

Stations that partner with PRNDI to help host conferences have no financial commitment to the organization.  The conferences are self-supporting, but having a partnership with a member station on the ground in a host city connects the planning committee with top hotels, caterers and special activities that offer unique insight into the host city’s culture.  In Houston we watched the Astros play the San Diego Padres at Minute Maid Park and in Cleveland we had an amazing night at the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame (an exclusive private event for PRNDI members).
