The National Black Programming Consortium is hosting a webinar on its Public Media Corps initiative at 2 p.m. tomorrow. The social media project hopes to expand the reach and relevance of public media to underserved groups, a statement says. Speaking at the webinar will be Jacquie Jones, executive director of the consortium; Kay Shaw, director of the corps; and Nonso Christian Ugbode, the consortium’s digital media director. (Ugbode recently wrote a column for Current on the project.) They’ll detail the goals of the national initiative, its use of digital tools and its local residency program. Register online for the event. David Leroy of TRAC Media Services recently told Current the project created quite a buzz at a PBS round robin late last year.
