Welcome to the Weekly PBS Interactive Station Products & Innovation Debrief, designed to give PBS stations a rundown of product updates and opportunities announced this week on our blog.
This week, PBS Interactive released the "Mobile White Label Series for Stations". This collection of resources addresses each level of the mobile process and can be rebranded, repurposed and re-distributed through your station to help educate and encourage conversations about mobile. Click the link below to learn more about these resources.
Also this week, we spoke with Jasmine Bulin, Senior Manager of Interactive at PBS SoCal, to talk about her station’s latest Raise the Barn event and to ask if she had any advice for public media colleagues. Check out the link below to see what she had to say.
We also said goodbye to our wonderful Station Products & Innovation Intern, Rachel Lim, who is leaving us to go back to school at the University of Virginia. Before she left, however, we were able to convince her to do one last installment of Tales of a PBS Intern, which takes readers behind the scenes and into the secret lives of PBS interns. To read about all the exciting things she was able to do with her last few weeks @SPI_PBS, click the link below.
In other news, the Localized Traffic Report for July is available for review in the SRC. Click the link below for more information on how to access this report.
Last but certainly not least, next week (August 19th – 21st) KPCC, Southern California Public Radio, PBS SoCal and KQED are hosting PubCamp West, part of the nationwide series of gatherings focused on "forging greater collaboration between public media organizations and their communities." Admission is FREE but RSVP's are required - everyone is welcome to contribute to the unconference: bloggers, other media types, and the public. Planning to attend? Let us know, our very own SPI, Amy Baroch will be there and would love to say "hi".
