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.

We hope everyone is on their way to a safe holiday weekend. But first, don’t forget your weekly debrief of this week’s happenings.

Many thanks to all who participated in this week’s Prosper webinar. If you missed it, we’ll be posting an archive of the webinar in the Prosper Resource Center of Station Remote Control. For those who attended, you will receive an email from us to confirm your point of contact for the portal. Documentation for the portal will also be available in the Prosper Resource Center.

We have another mobile station interview with Leng Caloh, Interactive Strategies Manager, and Nathan Gibbs, Web Producer of KPBS. KPBS has developed a mobile site with radio streams and a feed for the latest in news releases, and is currently concentrating on building out apps for both iPhone and Android.

For this week’s edition of The SPI Files, we're moving up to New Hampshire to speak with NHPTV's Integrated Media Producer, Montana West. Montana shares his tips and what’s next for NHPTV.
