Knell talks Connected Cars, federal funding and more with Nieman

When it comes to explaining the relationship between NPR, its stations and the federal government, “part of me wants to do like a Schoolhouse Rock video of ‘how a bill becomes law,’” says NPR President Gary Knell in a Q&A with the Nieman Journalism Lab. Knell argues that federal support for public broadcasting serves the public interest by educating the public “so that we can make correct decisions and our political leaders can make correct decisions.” The interview also covers NPR’s promotion of Kinsey Wilson to chief content officer, the network’s development of in-car apps for Ford and other subjects.
