I hear that Matt Burrough, who’s graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology with a BS degree in networking, security and system administration in May, will join NPR Labs full-time in June.
He’ll work on prototyping captioned radio services in addition to “exciting secret projects” according to one source.
Matt tells me he worked on several projects last summer, including writing a PAD program for NPR’s multicast format Groove Salad, assisting with HD Radio testing and coverage surveys.
NPR Labs has made a notable impact as an industry research resource in the short time since it was launched. I’ll continue to keep you in the loop on what Mike Starling, John Kean, Jan Andrews and crew are up to in their Washington idea hatchery.
Which perhaps won’t be in Washington in a few years …
