March 2008: NPR: Not your Parents' Radio – Part Two

In February's issue of The Convergence Newsletter, we presented part one of our interview with Maria Thomas, senior vice president of digital media at National Public Radio. This month, we're pleased to present the conclusion to that interview.

Thomas speaks at length about how a media company that has been traditionally tied to a particular format -- in this case, radio -- can become an innovator in the arena of new technologies while at the same time staying true to its core values.

While NPR continues to embrace new technologies, some traditional radio stations are worrying customers will stop tuning in for over-the-air NPR content, and possibly stop donating to those listener-supported stations, as well. Randy Dotinga of The Christian Science Monitor explains.
