Webinars

A webinar on Thursday, October 26th allows you to look at the answers to the question of what opportunities are available for the growth of local public media in the future.  AIR media will host the webinar at 1 PM EST that features information from Edison Research.  The webinar is a culmination of Edison Research’s "Switch On, Tune In" study that investigated the 'far corners' of local communities where AIR's Finding America teams embedded.

No doubt these are challenging (yet exciting) times for our newsrooms. PRNDI is committed to making sure public radio newsrooms across the system have solid leadership in place to navigate today's ever-changing media landscape.

Where do you put commas?

What about abbreviations, is it GA or Ga?

And what about numbers, do you write eleven or 11?

Ack! How are you supposed to know, you're a radio reporter?!?! 

Well, here's where Mercer University's Adam Ragusea can help. Adam held a PRNDI webinar giving basic tips and general guidance on how to move a script from one medium to another.

Does this sound familiar? You put your resources behind a great story that you and your staff are proud of. When it finally airs, it sounds great on the radio, and you're feeling swell. But within a few days your audience's attention moves elsewhere.

Just like a great headline a great photo can make your story pop online, on Twitter and on Facebook.  In this webinar, NPR’s Kainaz Amaria walks through the basics of taking a good photo and what it takes to turn that good photo into a great one.

Join PRNDI, AIR, and KUT for a webinar on taking your newsroom into your community with Localore: Finding America.

It’s almost summer, and a new batch of interns will soon be knocking down the newsroom door. 

What, oh, what to do with them?

Interns should learn how to write, record and edit audio, develop a story idea and execute it. Get them going with cut-and-copy, then wraps, then superspots. What works well: treat interns like professional reporters. Logging tape is busy work, don't make interns do it unless it will really contribute to a story for air. Make sure interns have work to show for when they finish their internship. Tell your colleagues about the good ones so they get jobs in public media.

Hear that and much more from George Bodarky — News and Public Affairs Director in WFUV's student-filled newsroom, Doug Mitchell — Next Generation Radio Founder and NPR Talent Developer, and Ann Marie Awad — Morning Edition Maven at WRKF and not-so-long-ago intern at WHYY.

Media Guru Sree Sreenivasan shares tricks of the trade.

As stations reach for a greater share of the audience, we’ll need to hear from a bigger swath of the community. Getting these new, more diverse voices on the air and online can be tough. In this webinar, we’ll take a look at a major sourcing project underway at NPR and share the 7 top ideas that come from stations and the network, all aimed at helping public radio look and sound more like America. Our presenters are Keith Woods, NPR's Vice President for Diversity in News and Operations and Luis Clemens, NPR's Senior Editor for Diversity.
