At the PRNDI Conference on Friday, NPR leaders outlined a new effort to collaborate with member stations through regional hubs. They said the initiative would better synthesize local member station coverage within regions, and improve the network's ability to cover stories nationwide.

NPR's Collaborative Coverage Senior Editor Bruce Auster, who's heading the initiative, held a breakout session entitled Imagining a Collaborative Journalism Network.

"We want this to be like NATO  for public radio," he said.
