The Weekly SPI Debrief - December 2, 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 KERA is celebrating 50 years in public broadcasting. Deborah Johnson, Executive Vice President for Development and Marketing and Alan Melson, Director of Interactive, sat down with the SPI team to answer some questions about the event.

In the Station Spotlight this week, we highlight KCTS 9's success with KCTS 9 Cooks. This program is a live show featuring local home cooks surrounding a specific theme.

This week on The SPI Files, we interview Ashley Barcum, Director of Communications at OETA to discuss OETA's recent web and communications outreach strategy.

Does your station have holiday content? PBS Interactive is looking for holiday-related content from your station to share across during the holiday season. Contact the SPI Team with all your holiday themed content and ideas.

Finally, don't forget to register for the webinar, "What is this thing called Station Bento?" Station Bento is a tool for creating station web sites, managing online content, and leveraging Merlin and COVE in ways that can benefit all stations.

The webinar will be Tuesday, December 13, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST
