PRNDI's Accepting Nominations for Reporter Training
PRNDI invites member stations to nominate a reporter to participate in our upcoming Reporter Training in Philadelphia, PA.
This is a free opportunity for young, novice, and new public radio reporters from PRNDI member stations. The training will take place October 26th and 27th at WHYY. We only ask that you cover the cost of transportation, accommodations and a meal or two for your reporter. We've secured a $129 per night room rate at the Holiday Inn Historic District Philadelphia.
We’ll have two full days of hands-on training focused on upgrading your reporter’s overall journalism skills. PRNDI senior trainers Tanya Ott and Julianne Welby will offer new strategies for story visioning, sound gathering, interviewing and writing. The trainers will help each reporter complete a feature story for air at your station.
To nominate a reporter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, August 17th with REPORTER TRAINING in the subject line. Include the reporter’s name, years in public radio, and a brief assessment of your reporter’s abilities in the following areas:
• Story selection and planning.
• Interviewing and story gathering.
• Tape selection and writing.
• Performance and production.
As room is limited (10 spaces), we may not be able to accommodate all requests.
