Welcome to the Weekly PBS Interactive Station Products & Innovation Debrief, designed to give PBS stations a rundown of Interactive updates and opportunities announced this week on our blog.
The lo-fi, 1960s influenced, indie band Dr. Dog will be performing for KLRU’s Austin City Limits on Monday, June 25th at 9/8c. In partnership with ACL, PBS will be live streaming the concert on the PBS Facebook Fan Page.
On May 31, Melody Kramer, web producer for NPR's Fresh Air, discussed her social media strategy for the show. See our #localpbs takeaways from Melody’s webinar
In an effort to better communicate the experience of being an intern at PBS, the PBS Interactive interns have launched the @PBSinterns Twitter account. Please RT.
The PBS Interactive Station Advisory Council (SAC) is made up of a group of leaders within the public television system. As PBS Interactive delivers new products and services, these members collaborate with PBS Interactive and advocate for stations every step of the way. Meet David Dickinson, Online Manager at Wisconsin Public Television and SAC member since December 2011.
