  The NPR Digital Services/Knight Foundation Digital News Training is quite likely the largest training initiative ever undertaken in public media.

Over nearly two years, forty-seven stations have participated in our 11-week intensive training, and our news trainers have conducted on-site trainings at eight stations.
