An important update regarding The Slowdown

The last episode of The Slowdown for radio broadcast will be on January 15, 2021.

Dear colleagues –

I am writing to deliver some important news about The Slowdown. After much consideration, the show has decided to put the podcast on hiatus and discontinue radio distribution of the program. We’d like to thank Tracy K. Smith, Pulitzer Prize winner and former U.S. Poet Laureate, and The Slowdown team for delivering to public radio airwaves a unique way to see the world each day though five minutes of poetry. In a note to her fans, host Tracy K. Smith wrote:

“As the season shifts, I’m also shifting, giving my attention back to family, to writing poems of my own, and to my wonderful students. I will miss this practice of rising early to write my Slowdown episodes or staying up late to record them. But I’ll hold on tightly to the joy that all of this has fostered in my life, which won’t end when the Slowdown goes on hiatus later this month.”

Tracy K. Smith

To make this transition as seamless as possible for stations who currently carry The Slowdown, we recommend reviewing the details below.

  • Episodes will be provided through Fri, Jan 15, 2021, with encore episodes running November 2 – Jan 15.
  • APM will provide a sunset promo, available on Content Depot.
  • Tracy will mention at the top of the Jan 15 show that it is the final broadcast.

Alternative programs that we recommend in place of The Slowdown include:

  • Marketplace Tech – From Marketplace’s Molly Wood, this four-minute weekday module tells the stories of modern life through our digital economy.
  • Composers Datebook – In this two-minute module, host John Birge presents a daily snapshot of composers’ past and present with timely information, intriguing musical events, and appropriate, accessible music related to each.

If you have any questions about this transition or alternative programming, do not hesitate to reach out to your Station Relations Representative.

Best,
Chandra Kavati
Vice President of Distribution and Underwriting, American Public Media

Interim/Winter Schedules and new Media Partner Centre

Two big transitions are coming to the BBC World Service later this month – the changeover to Interim/Winter schedules to account for daylight saving time, and the sunset of the old BBC Partner Site coinciding with launch of the new Media Partner Centre. Please share this email with any of your colleagues who access schedule or rundown details.

BBC World Service Schedule Changes

Given differences between the U.S. and U.K. in daylight saving time schedules, the BBC World Service will be on a one-week interim schedule prior to the winter schedule.

The 2020 interim winter schedule is effective Sunday, Otober 25 through Saturday, October 31, 2020.

Interim schedule highlights:

  • Newshour
    • Weekday editions remain the same, with an extra edition at 5 p.m. ET
    • Weekend 4 p.m. ET editions remain consistent during the interim schedule week, with an extra edition at 5 p.m. ET
    • Weekend 8 a.m. ET editions shift one hour to 9 a.m. ET. This change impacts scheduling on Sunday, October 25 and Saturday, October 31
  • BBC OS returns to 2 hours and will air weekdays at 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. ET. Note: each hour is stand-alone, and will shift to 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. for the Winter schedule

The 2021 winter schedule is effective Sunday, November 1, 2020 through Saturday, March 13, 2021.

Winter schedule highlights:

  • Core news programs (Newshour, Newsday, BBC OS) remain consistent with previous (non-interim) schedules
  • The Newsroom will remain consistent, except for the 6 p.m. edition which shifts 1 hour to 5 p.m. as in previous winter schedules
  • Program note: The new weekly half-hour program The Climate Question will lauch on Monday, November 16

Find these schedules on our website. Please review them carefully and contact your Station Representative with any questions.

Media Partner Centre

Earlier in the year, the Media Partner Centre launched and has been running in parallel with the Partner Site throughout the summer. This fall, on October 26, the Partner Site will cease to be updated and will redirect to the new Media Partner Centre, which will move forward as the main resource for all BBC affiliate stations.

Starting on October 26, the Media Partner Centre will be where you can download:

  • Daily rundowns for live news programs
  • Audio files for non-live programs
  • Any other items that you would normally access on the Partner Site

As previously communicated, one major change on the Media Partner Centre is that credentials are assigned to individual users instead of stations. If you have any staff that still need to apply for credentials, please have them do so via this form before October 26. On the APM Distribution BBC Partners page, we have a full description of the changes, walkthroughs for the BBC Login and credentialing process (including if your credentials have lapsed), and links to pdf and virtual guides for the new Media Partner Centre. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the new site, or contact your Station Representative with any questions.

What’s coming up from APM October 12-18

Here are the latest updates for upcoming programs. PLEASE NOTE: All details are subject to change. Additional details will be shared via ContentDepot as they become available.

Newshour: Presidential campaign coverage

  • Each Tuesday throughout October, BBC Newshour will hear from one of four key states across the United States – Arizona, Pennsylvania, Florida and Wisconsin. Each state will be pivotal to the outcome of the U.S. Election on Tuesday, November 3. We hear from big names in politics and talk to reporters on the ground at KJZZ in Phoenix, WHYY in Philadelphia, WUSF in Tampa and WUWM in Milwaukee – to find out why these states matter so much and the big themes to watch as voters head to the polls.
  • Tuesday, October 13: In 2016, Donald Trump won Pennsylvania – the first Republican presidential candidate to take the state since 1988. Newshour’s next stop is Philadelphia, where Razia Iqbal interviews the Democratic US Senator for Pennsylvania, Bob Casey, asking him how Joe Biden will win over the white non-college educated voters his party lost in 2016. There will also be analysis from WHYY reporter Katie Meyer, who will help us understand the importance of the suburban voter in determining which way the state votes.

  • October 9: 1976 was a red white and blue year – the year of the American bicentennial – and classic rock dominated – with landmark albums from The Eagles,, Jackson Browne, Steve Miller, and Frampton Came Alive. Disco was big, but at the same time, a new sound was emerging and with the debut album from The Ramones, music would never be the same. But the album of the year was clear – a double album masterpiece from Stevie Wonder, Songs in the Key of Life.

APM welcomes On Point to our portfolio

We are excited to announce that on January 4 APM will welcome On Point to our national distribution portfolio. Produced by WBUR in Boston, On Point’s vibrant conversation covers everything from breaking news to ancient poetry, and features writers, politicians, journalists, artists, scientists and ordinary citizens from around the world.

On Point announced its transition from a two-hour call-in program to a one-hour format earlier this summer. In its new form, the show will aim to take deeper dives on newsworthy subjects with more highly produced and narrative segments. The new On Point fits beautifully into the APM portfolio along with The Daily, BBC World Service and Marketplace.

Meghna Chakrabarti

Meghna Chakrabarti serves as host and editor of On Point. Based in Boston, she is on the air Monday through Thursday. She is the former host of Radio Boston, WBUR’s acclaimed weekday show with a focus on news, in-depth interviews with extraordinary people, and analysis on broader issues that have an impact on Boston and beyond. She also served as the primary fill-in host for Here & Now, NPR and WBUR’s co-produced national midday news program. And she is the host of Modern Love: The Podcast, a collaboration of WBUR and The New York Times.

We commit to working closely with stations who currently carry On Point to make the transition as seamless as possible. More details will be provided soon, but in the meantime if you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to your station relations representative.

FAQ’S:

Will there be a new subscription page in ContentDepot?

Through the end of the calendar year you should continue to get On Point through the existing ContentDepot feed. We will be working with NPR to switch over automations and will run concurrent streams for a period of time. Watch your inbox and ContentDepot for further detail and links.

Which network will bill us?

Stations currently carrying On Point will continue to be billed by NPR through December 2020, then APM will begin billing starting January 2021. We will work with you closely to make this a seamless transition.

APM at Let’s Go Live!

American Public Media is a gold-level sponsor of PRPD and PMJA’s joint 4-day virtual summit, Let’s Go Live! We encourage you to seek out APM sessions and activities. Below is a comprehensive list of how you can hear from APM programs and employees:

Opening Session — Building an Inclusive Public Media

Monday, September 21, 11:00 a.m. (ET)
Panelists: Celeste Headlee, host & author; Duchesne Drew, President of Minnesota Public Radio; and Tanzina Vega, host of The Takeaway

Our country is experiencing yet another cultural reckoning as systemic racism and social injustice becomes apparent in our most entrenched systems. As our society struggles to rise to this moment, public media is looking in the mirror and recognizing our own institutional biases. It is time to challenge our own assumptions about our charge as noncommercial education media outlets. Who do we serve and whose vision is driving our most important decisions as an industry? What role can we play in reaching out to a broader audience that includes as much of America as possible? For our opening session, PRPD and PMJA invite a group of people of color to share their vision of what public media can accomplish if we truly commit ourselves to inclusivity and equity.

Covering the COVID Election with Reveal

Monday, September 21, 11:00 a.m. (ET)
Moderator: Sumi Aggarawal, Director of Collaborations, Reveal

We’ve all heard stories of how unprepared elections officials and the U.S. Postal Service are for the 2020 election in light of all the COVID-19 restrictions and concerns. Reveal, APM Reports and several local stations launched a collaboration to uncover the deeper fault lines in the voting system and the orchestrated attempts to suppress the vote. Join us to see how the collaboration is playing out just weeks before the election and get a preview of some of our findings.

Radio Trivia Happy Hour — Sponsored by APM

Tuesday, September 22, 5:15 p.m. (ET)
Join us for a digital happy hour where we’ll dive deep into radio-related trivia with trivia masters, Trivia Mafia.

Responsive On-Air Fundraising

Tuesday, September 22, 12:00 p.m. (ET)
Presenters: Mike Wallace, President, Public Radio Revenue; and Lindsay Kimball, Director of Regional Membership at MPR and Host at The Current

Whether we’re in a pandemic or not, being responsive to what’s going on around us during an on-air fundraiser is vitally important — and it’s easier than you might think! Join us for practical tips and real-world examples of stations who put the news and music first during their on-air fundraising campaigns.

Super Practical Tips for Editing Scripts

Wednesday, Sept 23, 2:00 p.m. (ET)
Panelists: Korva Coleman, newscaster and cross-platform breaking news writer, NPR; Phyllis Fletcher, senior editor, APM Studios; and Rachel Osier Lindley, senior editor, The Texas Newsroom

Quick! You have a newscast in ten minutes. How can you best fact check your copy? Or you’re editing a feature that has to be on the air ASAP. In this session, experienced editors will show you how to get the most out of edits on deadline and share best practices they’ve learned for making stories sing. If you want to get in the weeds on script editing, this session is for you.

Closing Session — Don’t Lose This Moment

Thursday, September 24, 4:00 p.m. (ET)
Panelists: Angela Davis, Host of MPR News; Jordan Lee, Program Director, Radio Milwaukee; and Pallavi Gogoi, Chief Business Editor, NPR

You joined our opening session to hear from three leaders about their vision for public media’s future. Now, we’ve asked three additional leaders to build on what we all heard at that opening session. What is the vision moving forward? How can we capitalize on this moment in history and make our entire system better? As we leave this virtual gathering of public media news and content leaders, we hope this session will empower you as you return to your stations.

BBC World Service updates from Steve Titherington, Senior Commissioning Editor

Dear colleagues:

I hope this message finds you all well, and things are as well as can be at home and in the office. And if home has become the office, good luck with that too!

It’s an understatement to say that the last several months have been a challenge. Like everyone else, news operations across the world have had to overhaul how they operate—recording in living rooms and garages instead of studios, devising new ways of having material gathered in the field and new ways of interviewing. Facing new challenges and new opportunities.

The pandemic has brought innumerable tragedies around the world, affecting entire societies and individual families. It has forced changes in the way we work. I think it is also causing us to think about what our work is for.

Something is changing in the world, in the same way something is changing in America. The killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis convulsed America. It also appalled the rest of the world. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has both shown the links we share for good and bad in this interconnected world, and how a nation can determine the fate of its citizens.

This time has made us at the BBC rethink both what we do and how we do it. At the BBC World Service, we aim to do more with more of our partners: fly less, partner more; share more and support more news journalists around the world. We have heard from station partners that you want greater amounts of BBC reporting and analysis on how the world is reacting to global events and finding solutions to the problems they face.

I hope that you will be interested in what our plans are for the months ahead. Some of our upcoming plans include:

U.S. Elections: We’ll be covering the U.S. elections by teaming up with stations as we have done in the past. This year, Newshour will be linking up with four stations during the month of October for special programming. We will be working with stations to highlight the importance of this election (infused with your expertise) to our international audience. We’re also bringing you Global View on 2020, a week-in-review :59 or 3:59 module that provides an international perspective on the 2020 elections.

BBC OS is featuring weekly interviews with Nate Hegyi from the Mountain West News Bureau and his 900-mile cycling trip crisscrossing the Continental Divide, interviewing and listening to Americans ahead of the 2020 election. Nate’s journey is supported by America Amplified, a community engagement journalism project based at KCUR.

There will be special reports and debates over the coming week to tell the world what is dividing America, and to share with you what the world is saying about America. We will also be asking just what America’s commitment to the world is at this time, and what the world actually wants from America.

Climate: A new weekly program from the BBC World Service launches the week after the election is over, and for many that’s not a day too soon. To many the climate remains the most important political, economic and environmental issue the world is singularly failing to reach agreement over. The Climate Question asks: Why do we find it so hard to save a planet?
We will of course be keeping the global pandemic to the fore of our news reporting and our science and health analysis. You might be interested to know that in addition to our global 1-minute and 5-minute roundups each day, we do separate regional roundups for Latin America, India and Africa.

We will continue to bring you the global perspective on important topics with special coverage on health, politics, culture and education. We are particularly interested in the effect of COVID-19 on a new generation emerging into a world of drastically changing fortunes, and we’ll continue to monitor the political and social situation in countries like Russia, China, India and Brazil.

Find the latest docs and specials curated for Content Depot here.

I will really miss connecting with many of you in person at this year’s PRPD, as I know you will miss being amused to see the jetlagged Brits slumped over their Starbucks Grande still convinced a pledge drive is something to do with the temperance movement. I will of course join virtually.

Here’s to better times ahead and working closer than ever.

Yours,
Steve
