PUBLIC RADIO INTERNATIONAL is entering a two year partnership with the SKOLL FOUNDATION to support on-air and online coverage of social entrepreneurs in PRI programs. The foundation is giving PRI a $600,000 grant for coverage of "remarkable individuals who have identified sustainable solutions to global problems" on shows including "THE WORLD" and the new "THE MORNING SHOW."
PRI President and CEO ALISA MILLER says, "We are proud to partner with the SKOLL FOUNDATION. Our news programs regularly focus on the issues impacting our world and the ways social entrepreneurs act to confront and systematically resolve some of humanity's biggest challenges. PRI brings different voices to the public airwaves, and we look forward to telling more of these important stories."
