Sally Kane speaks at this week’s public media event.
Kicking off today, the Public Radio Content Conference is one of the United States’ major events for noncommercial radio. NFCB’s Chief Executive Officer speaks on Thursday, as part of the panel, “Red State Report.”
The session is described as, “The recent election cycle has taught us that rural America should not — and cannot — be ignored. As public media organizations we have a special opportunity to bridge divides between rural communities and larger metro areas, but many stations are struggling with where to begin. We turn the tables in this session as we invite large-market stations to sit in the seats and listen closely to our rural station panel, as they help us understand the work of public broadcasting in non-urban, often politically conservative settings and outline their vision for the unique role public media can play in the current climate. They’ll share some concrete ideas for how urban and rural stations can do a better job supporting each other’s efforts.”
