Public Radio International has received grants totaling $1 million to expand the global reportage in its programs. The funds are from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
PRI President/CEO Stephen Salyer stated four simultaneous commitments from four leading foundations is rare. "Listeners need the insights public radio provides to make sense of events and to grasp the implications of global change at the local level."
Collectively, the awards support news coverage on the weekday international news magazine, "PRI's The World," and expansion of a service that helps stations produce local content that connects global issues to the interests of local communities.
These awards follow a $2.5 million award to PRI announced in May by the Ford Foundation.
