In this month’s newsletter you’ll hear about our final Knight-funded conference, how West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s digital transformation helped them cover a massive water crisis, learn about the daily workflows of NHPR’s Brady Carlson and KUNC’s Erin O’Toole, and take a peek into the digital life of KPLU’s Martha Kang.

Is there a world renowned professor at a nearby university? How about a famous local chef? A local filmmaker, artist or writer?

The site is made up of contributors from Boston's community of thinkers and influencers.

In this webinar we had a conversation with Iris Adler and Frannie Carr Toth, who run Cognoscenti.
