The Weekly Debrief - Jan. 27, 2012

By Joy Loving, 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 Prosper team introduced a “Localize Your PBS Experience” lightbox to visitors. This experiment will allow viewers the ability to localize to their favorite PBS stations if they have not already chosen one. 

Also this week, the SPI Files introduces you to new members of our Station Advisory Council (SAC). This week, meet Dennis Haarsager, the President and Executive Director of Public Television Major Market Group. In this interview, Haarsager talks about his past professional experience and what the future holds for PTMMG. 

In the week's Station Spotlight, the SPI team’s Kelsey Savage gave us a look into WTTW’s Chicago Loop Tour. Learn more about Kelsey’s station experience, and how WTTW utilized Google Maps and HTML 5 in the creation of their interactive tour by following the link below.

PBS KIDS has been rolling out the 2011 PBS KIDS GO! Grant web products. Over the next few months, we will introduce you to the winning station’s project leaders and their customizable products for your station. This week, learn more about Susan Barbeau from KBTC and the PBS KIDS GO! Fun Finder.

Station Bento is Coming! Get your questions answered and download valuable Bento resources including webinar archives, FAQs, and other documentation here.
This week is your last chance to win Downton Abbey season 2 DVDs. We have already had a great response, but if you have replied to the Station Bento survey, please take a few moments to send in your valuable feedback:

We will randomly select five winners to receive PBS Station Interactive prizes packages, which include Downton Abbey season 2 DVDs. The survey is open through January 31.

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