NPR Story Lab Expands Mission, Funds Three Podcast Pilots
October 19, 2016 at 8:41 AM (PT)
The NPR Story Lab newsroom idea incubator project is expanding to cover other content divisions to develop more projects, including podcasts and radio shows as well as stories for the news operation. The project will also add investment in training, audio workshops and meet-ups like the three-day audio workshop last SPRING that has led to further funding for three podcast pilots, KERA/DALLAS' "DRUGGED," CLAIRE TACON's "DO OVER," and KALW/SAN FRANCISCO's "THE STOOP."
The next NPR Story Lab workshop will take place in MARCH and applications to participate are being taken now, in conjunction with ASSOCIATION OF INDEPENDENTS IN RADIO (AIR).
