Well it depends

November Editorial Newsletter

Nov 24, 2014

Greetings! As we get ready for the upcoming holiday season, we would love to hear what’s new at your station. Email us at coaching@npr.org to tell us the latest. Perhaps you have a fun holiday series you’re working on?

In this month's newsletter, we highlight examples of great journalism told in a variety of ways from KPCC, KERA, and OPB. Do these examples give you an idea for your own station? Well, read on, because we have tips for how to pitch digital projects in our latest installment of our advice column “Well, it Depends.” Plus, don’t miss our popular feature “Digital Life.” This month we hear from NPR Washington Desk digital editor Amita Parashar.

As part of our work on the NPR editorial coaching and development team, we’ve found that stations share many of the same questions and concerns with us. This advice column is one way to help make those questions and answers more public. 

Share your feedback via email to tgorman@npr.org. Submit your own questions for future installments of the advice column in this form.

Hi all- happy August! We hope everyone’s staying cool and enjoying the end of summer.

We have a lot to share with you this month, including highlights from recent training visits to KNAU and KAZU, links to great work from KUNC, WNPR, WGBH and Nashville Public Radio and the launch of our advice column, "Well, it Depends."

Do you have a story we should highlight or questions to ask? Let us know (or just say hi) by emailing us at coaching@npr.org. Get this monthly newsletter in your inbox - subscribe here.

The NPR coaching and development team works with NPR and member stations to help newsrooms and journalists reach a growing, multi-platform audience. As part of that work, we’ve found that stations share many of the same questions and concerns with us.

This advice column is one way to help make those questions and answers more public. By making public radio’s collective knowledge accessible, we can continue to learn from each other.

All thoughts, questions and feedback are welcome. Share your feedback via email to tgorman@npr.org.
