Conference

Rachel Osier Lindley

During the PRNDI Awards Banquet on Saturday June 23rd, NPR's Keith Woods accepted the Leo C. Lee Award for his exceptional work in public media.  Woods is NPR's Vice President for Newsroom Training and Diversity at NPR.  He titled his address: How To Make It Stick.

The PRNDI 2018 conference jumped into important issues with a look at creating a safe work environment in newsrooms across the country. With the start of the #Metoo movement and several sexual harassment and bullying revelations in the media recently, panelists discussed how news managers and editors can create an emotionally-safe work environment.

The competition was fierce, but the results are in! Please join PRNDI in congratulating our 2018 early career conference scholarship winners: DaLyah Jones and Araceli Gomez-Aldana.

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

What are some of the best, most creative, beautiful, hilarious, or just really smart uses of sound you've heard in member station-produced work? For PRNDI 2018, we're putting together a session to inspire us and remind us what's possible with audio. It can be an entire story or just a few moments. It can be great use of ambient sound or sound effects, but it can also be great rhythmic writing or production. It can be non-narrated. These are pieces that embrace and celebrate the medium of audio.

The PRNDI Board is working on finalizing a great agenda for the 2018 PRNDI Conference coming up in June in Philadelphia.  We'll post the agenda here soon.  In the meantime, mark your calendar for June 20 through June 23.  The PRNDI Room rate for a single or double room is $189 per night.  You can reserve your room now online at THIS LINK.
