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.
Last week on The SPI Files, we got the inside scoop on PBS SoCal from Jasmine Bulin, Senior Manager of Interactive. This week, we left sunny California behind for the earthquakes and hurricanes of the east coast where we learned more about Eric Freeland, Director of Online Programming & Promotion for PBS Interactive. Check out the link below to learn about Eric and his role at PBS!
Also this week, we chatted with Web Administrator Thomas Broadus about Mississippi Public Broadcasting's experimentation with mobile in the latest installment of our Mobile White Label Series for Stations, in which we profile mobile efforts at stations throughout the system on a variety of topics, ranging from mobile giving to the differences between mobile Web and mobile apps. See what Thomas had to say by following the links below!
