The Weekly SPI Debrief - October 21, 2011

By Marla Krueger, Station Products & Innovation

Welcome to the Weekly PBS Interactive Station Products & Innovation Debrief, which is designed to give PBS stations a rundown of product updates and opportunities announced this week on our blog.

This week the SPI team was four people down as Kristin Calhoun, Amy Baroch, Tricia George and I traveled to NETA Kansas City 2012. We will be 110% Game-Ready by next week with all the highlights from NETA, and we hope everyone who traveled to the conference had safe travels. 

We are happy to announce that on October 18th, PBS publicly announced the launch of the full PBS Food online experience! The new website offers more than 150 of public television’s local and national food programs all in one place. Follow the link below to read more. 

In this week's Presented by Incubation Lab we start a three-part series looking at natural disaster coverage on the local pub media level with WSKG's Teresa Peltier, Emerging Media Specialist, and Amy Wielunski, Manager of Membership & Special Events. They share how their station provided valuable online and on-air information to the community during and after the September flood events resulting from Tropical Storm Lee.
This week on The SPI Files, we stay close to home to talk with Geoff Bishop, Director of Mobile Products at PBS, to learn more about the exciting new things that PBS is working on in the mobile landscape. What’s around the corner for PBS mobile?

As always, the SPI team appreciates all of your valuable comments and participation on our site this week and every week.
