New Web Service Will Enable Hispanic Community Radio Journalists to Share Programming
The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is partnering with Public Radio Exchange (PRX) to provide community radio journalists in the United States and Latin America with a new Web-based service to share and rebroadcast stories across borders.
The partnership is part of a two-year program, funded by the McCormick Foundation, to train journalists from Latin America and Spanish-language media in the United States to use multimedia platforms to enrich coverage. Participants will first meet in Washington, DC, where they will take reporting field trips and interview key policy-makers and experts, including those at the Federal Communications Commission. The program includes a panel discussion about whether the Obama Administration's stimulus package is expanding broadband access for minority communities. It will take place at the National Press Club on Sept. 17.
