We’ve talked for years about the need to embrace the future – new technology, new audiences, new platforms – and public radio has taken up the challenge.  While we’re moving forward, it’s also important to ask what has public radio has achieved that we want to be sure to take with us – What is Enduring?

Four innovative thinkers from within and outside public radio will each give 12-minute presentations about public radio’s unique appeal and the qualities critical to maintaining and expanding our extensive “communities”.   We’ll then have a Q&A / discussion with the audience to explore further the “glue” that underlies the amazing connection our audiences feel with our stations, programs and content offerings.
