CPB’s announcement of a “major journalism initiative” on Thursday, March 25 will be streamed live from the Newseum in Washington, D.C., beginning at 10 a.m. ET. CPB President Patricia Harrison will be joined by top execs from PBS and NPR. After the announcement, a panel of pubcasting journalists will discuss public media’s role in newsgathering. CPB’s funding of five “local journalism centers,” expected for months, will support more in-depth reporting by public radio stations on a regional basis.
