Ira Glass at PRPD's 2016 Content Conference

Ira Glass has not spoken at a public radio conference in nearly a decade. 

Wondering what will be different about attending this year’s PRPD and if you should go? 

Question answered.  

We don’t know what he’s going to say. It’s 100% in his control, but you can bet cash money we’ll be inspired and challenged to see our work from a new perspective. It’s a great opportunity to bring new team members at your station so they can be fully immersed in the culture that makes public radio unique.

Creating and Sustaining Investigative Reporting

PRX and The Center for Investigative Reporting
Monday, September 19, 2016

Investigative reporting takes time, money, staff and guts. It isn’t easy and not every station can do it. What does it take to cultivate, hire, sustain and generate great investigative reporting that can lead to changes in local communities? The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX will share what they have learned working with stations.  This pre-conference workshop with CIR staff and other practitioners will guide stations through sustainability, capacity building, editing, impact measurement, engagement and production of investigative news.

Pledge Drive Producer Workshop

Monday, September 19, 2016

This pre-conference session focuses on developing skills that help pledge producers create, coach and deliver effective fundraising breaks that sound good too. This one-day workshop focuses on the building of strong presentation skills among all participants in on-air drives.

Join John Sutton, Sonia Lee and Roger Gomoll as they take you through a combination of lectures, listening, discussion and one-on-one practice. Course participants will emerge from the course ready to bring a higher level of quality and efficiency to their stations.

Space is limited in both workshops to ensure each attendee gets the attention they need to bring new skills back to their organizations.
