A couple weeks into the school year, Marketplace’s Erika Beras looks at how learning pods are shaping up.

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

2020 BBC Proms Details

Due to the difficulty of hosting live events, the BBC Proms schedule will look different this year. Details are listed below.

BBC World Service

Two concerts from What’s On

From September 5th – Ralph Vaughan Williams: Symphony No. 5
BBC Broadcast times: Saturday, September 5, 2-3 p.m. ET, repeat on Sunday, September 6, 7-8 a.m. ET
Air window: Stations may air the program for 1 week after broadcast
Details: London Symphony Orchestra – Simon Rattle, conductor

In the first of this year’s two visits to the Proms on the BBC World Service, the London Symphony Orchestra under their Music Director Sir Simon Rattle perform the most popular among Ralph Vaughan Williams’s nine symphonies, the Fifth. The Symphony was premiered in 1943, in the middle of the Second World War, and its serene beauty was instantly appreciated as an antidote to the tragedies of war. The critic Neville Cardus called it “The most benedictory and consoling music of our time.” Andrew McGregor introduces the concert. You can learn more about this program on the Proms website.

From September 12th – Maurice Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin
BBC Broadcast times: Saturday, September 12, 2-3 p.m. ET, repeat on Sunday, September 13, 7-8 a.m. ET
Air window: Stations may air the program for 1 week after broadcast
Details:
• Dmitry Shostakovich: Concerto for piano, trumpet and strings
• Benjamin Grosvenor, piano
• Jason Evans, trumpet
• Philharmonia Orchestra
• Esa – Pekka Salonen, conductor

In the second visit to this year’s Proms on the BBC World Service, the Philharmonia Orchestra and its Principal Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen perform two very different 20th century works. Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin is a double homage: to the splendor of French 18th-century music and to Ravel’s friends and colleagues who perished in the First World War. Ravel was profoundly affected by his experiences as a lorry driver at the front and yet the music he wrote for the Tombeau is calm and reflective rather than tragic. The Shostakovich Concerto presents quite a contrast: written as a virtuoso vehicle for the composer himself who in his youth was also an outstanding pianist, it is an exuberant melange of jaunty tunes and distorted quotes from other composers’ works and popular songs. Andrew McGregor introduces the concert. You can learn more about this program on the Proms website.

SymphonyCast

Three concerts from the updated program listings

September 14, 2020 – First Night of the 2020 BBC Proms

Coronavirus Coverage

Marketplace

Week of August 10

Marketplace (PM)

  • Kai checks back in with Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America. 
  • Kai talks with Rita Colwell, former director of the National Science Foundation about her new book A Lab of One’s Own and the persistent problems that have kept many women from rising to the top of the profession.
  • One of the consequences of structural racism in our economy is the persistent gap between Black and white homeownership. Just 42-percent of Black households own their homes compared to 72 of white households, and yet in majority-Black communities like Baltimore there are thousands of houses just sitting empty. Marketplace’s Amy Scott has been reporting on the ongoing vacancy crisis in Baltimore where there are more than 16,000 buildings on the city’s official vacancy list. Although that number has been approximately the same for a decade, even after millions of dollars in investment, there has been progress in some neighborhoods. For the past several months, Amy has been following the evolution of a single block in West Baltimore.
