Kling has seen a lot change during his career in public media. But he’s confident that however technology changes, his former network and public radio as a whole will hang in there. “If the content can come to me on something I do use, and it’s easy to find and it’s relevant, then we’ll be doing the same job for future audiences that we are for current audiences,” he says.
