Building a Strong Infrastructure

This section of the handbook is based on our Checklist for Starting a Talk Show  and was developed to provide a framework for a set of critical decisions about your program’s mission, format, staffing, funding and sustainability. The more planning you can do before you launch your show, the more likely it will be that you will avoid common pitfalls like high burnout rates, crippling staff dissent, financial troubles, or lackluster audience response.
