Technology 2013: PRTS5 ...Unplugged ... Not Just the Data ...

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

By now, you’ve seen presentations of the Public Radio Tech Surveys. This year at PRPD, we’re doing something different – using key findings of this landmark study as conversation starters in a fast-moving session that covers what the data means and its implications for public radio. Our panel will break down some of the biggest takeaways from PRTS5 and discuss their impact – not just on demographics, but on the changing generational mix that makes up public radio’s past, present, and future.

Find out how listeners connect with their favorite stations using digital technology, how to harness their propensity to share and recommend, and how smartphones – and especially tablets – are changing the way they’re accessing programming.
