Bill Kling at PRDMC

Dennis Haarsager posts a speech delivered at this year's Public Radio Development and Marketing Conference by Bill Kling, president of Minnesota Public Radio/American Public Media. "With audiences increasingly in control of when and where they listen, it is no time to take them -- or our stature in the community -- for granted," he says.

Carvin heads to NPR

Andy Carvin announces on his weblog that he's joining NPR as senior product manager for online communities. "In this role, I'll essentially act as NPR's Web 2.0 strategist, helping them develop new initiatives that encourage greater public involvement in NPR's online activities," he says. "These activities could take a variety of forms: online social networks, wikis, blogs, mobcasting, citizen journalism, original content sharing." Carvin runs the Digital Divide Network and has worked for years on web education projects.
