Public Radio International has created the PRI Fellows Program. It is an effort to cultivate minority journalists and increase the diversity of perspectives and voices in public radio.
PRI Fellows’ responsibilities include the creation of content for local and national broadcast. Participants are asked to identify ideas, stories and people from communities of color who are relatively new to public radio.
Jacquie Gales Webb began her Fellows experience this summer at WAMU(FM) in Washington, developing arts and culture programming for PRI’s Studio 360 and for local station programming.
The PRI Fellows Program is funded in part by the Ford Foundation. The program awards a yearlong fellowship to an African American, an Asian American and a Hispanic. The second fellowship is scheduled to begin by year’s end at KQED(FM) in San Francisco. A third fellowship remains in development.
