Ways to Connect

In this webinar Ithaca College journalism professor Anthony Adornato, a former local TV news reporter and author of Mobile and Social Media Journalism: A Practical Guide, walks you through some of the most innovative ways of engaging audiences on social media. In particular, he discusses how to optimize your social media content through the use of social media graphics and “readable” videos – both of which can be created quickly using a mobile device.

President’s Annual Report to the Members

June, 2016

Strategic Planning

Each year the PRNDI board holds a retreat to plan the annual conference and set the organization’s goals for the year ahead.  Among the initiatives in the works (or already achieved) as a result of that meeting are:

PRNDI is deeply saddened by the deaths in Afghanistan of NPR photojournalist David Gilkey and NPR's Afghan interpreter and fellow journalist Zabihullah Tamanna.

You can read and listen to NPR's coverage of this tragic news here and here.

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.

The Public Radio News Directors Incorporated (PRNDI), in partnership with the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE), proudly announce that Courtney Collins and the news staff at KERA in North Texas will be the recipient of this year’s Excellence in Consumer Financial Reporting Award. PRNDI and NEFE will present the award to KERA at the PRNDI annual conference in St. Louis on June 25.

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.
