Each year, PRNDI honors an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to public radio news. The award is named in honor of its first recipient: Leo C. Lee, the founder of Western Public Radio, a San Francisco-based public radio training program.
The 2013 PRNDI Conference Hotel is the Wyndham Cleveland at Playhouse Square. Rooms are available at a PRNDI rate of $109 per night. Reservations can be made by calling the hotel direct at 216-615-7500 or by calling the toll-free reservation line at 800-996-3426. You must mention Public Radio News Directors Inc. to receive the conference rate. All reservations must be made by May 28th, 2013.
On Friday, June 21st, be sure to join PRNDI at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland for a great evening. We'll have the Rock Hall to ourselves for the evening. Conference attendees (and their guest for a fee) can wander through all the great exhibits on the six levels at the iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. As a special treat, PRNDI will be producing a special Rock Trivia game with our members as contestants. Register now for the conference to be a part of this great event.
PRNDI Conference goers will have plenty to talk about from this year's annual conference. The PRNDI Board has planned all kinds of wonderful events for attendees, and one of the exciting additions will have everyone taking a short walk to have lunch at the Cleveland City Club. PRNDI will be producing a panel discussion for the City Club's lunch entitled "Breaking News and Getting It Right."
The announcement in this post was distributed earlier today. Do you have any questions/concerns about this news? We'd love to hear your thoughts. You can e-mail PRNDI President George Bodarky or any PRNDI Board member.
