New President Vivian Schiller comes to NPR at an important time in the history of NPR – and the media as a whole.
Coming from the New York Times online division, Schiller has said that she wants to overhaul NPR’s web service – saying it’s one of the most important things the network can do.
It’s also a time of good and bad news for NPR. The good: Audience for Morning Edition and All things Considered hit record highs last year during the presidential campaign. The bad: A deficit of $8 million dollars has meant the loss of jobs and programs, and could mean more.
Today, Where We Live, a chance for you to ask questions of Vivian Schiller about her vision for the organization, the future of NPR, and the role of public media as the newspaper industry contracts.
