Ways to Connect

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).

Texas Public Radio (KSTX) in San Antonio is seeking a qualified individual to manage the station's local news department.

Introductions are always a good place to start. I’m News Director at KUER in Salt Lake City and I have the privilege of managing a talented staff of 5 reporters and hosts. PRNDI Members at this year’s conference approved a motion to expand the governing board by one additional “At Large” representative and voters elected me to that post.  The greatest part about this position is that I’m not replacing any of the very talented members of the board.  I’m here to contribute and continue making PRNDI an organization that lives up to its expectations.
