Reps from NPR will be attending this year’s PBS General Managers’ Planning Meeting May 11 in Baltimore. The meeting coincides with the annual PBS Showcase. At today’s PBS Board Meeting, member Jennifer Lawson said she’s pleased with the growing collaboration between the two pubcasting entitites. “I love the fact that we’re including NPR as part of these meetings,” said Lawson, g.m. of WHUT in Washington, D.C. “It’s wonderful that there are more and more forums and circumstances that bring all of us together as public media.” The board meeting runs through tomorrow at PBS headquarters in Arlington, Va. Issues before the governing group include Station Services membership policies and fundraising programming dues in overlap markets.
