1. In mid-September, the Association of Independents in Radio, Inc. launched Localore, a project that brings more than a million dollars in CPB funding to support independent producers tasked with helping increase local public stations' innovation capacity. This video showcases the first crop of the radio and television stations across the U.S. vying to become Localore incubators. Producers and stations: the proposal period closes on November 10, so visit Localore.net to apply today!

  2. This 90-minute webinar introduces an upcoming CPB-funded initiative that will provide significant new funding to producers across the country to "turbocharge" invention in journalism and storytelling at local public radio and television stations.

    Producers will be selected through an open, competitive process that launches on September 15 at airmediaworks.org, challenging applicants to share their “big idea” for a nine- to 12-month station-based collaborative project slated to begin in March 2012. At the same time, stations will be invited to throw their hats in the ring as potential incubators by submitting a three- to five-minute audio or video piece to our on-line Station Runway, showcasing their creative culture and goals for engaging new community members. (More details here:

    Those who join us for this exclusive webinar will hear more about AIR's vision for the project, participate in a nuts-and-bolts discussion of how to pitch ideas, and learn how to link up with potential station incubators.

  3. In October, NFCB invited the Localore team to join us for an exclusive look at how NFCB stations can take advantage of more than $1 million in CPB funding that AIR Is bringing to fuel local station innovation. Executive Director Noland Walker, Media Strategist Jessica Clark, and AIR Executive Director Sue Schardt will break down the steps for how you can get your station up on the Localore Station Runway and open new channels for your station to transform its service to your community and to meet and collaborate with inspired producers. We'll also hear from NFCB station managers who have already made the leap; they'll tell us why they're involved, how they produced their media, and -- with the Localore team -- answer your questions. 

We strongly recommend you take time in advance to read the FAQ, the guidelines, and watch the Station Runway media at:
    AIRmediaworks.org. 

This project is open to CPB-qualified stations.
