NPR CEO: We Want To Partner With Journalism Startups (The Atlantic)

NPR CEO Vivian Schiller wants her organization and its local affiliates to partner with the journalism startup companies that have been growing up through the wreckage of the newspaper business. The pitch she made at the Aspen Ideas Festival is simple: innovative journalism startups can do great work but they have trouble attracting large audiences. Public radio stations have millions of listeners, but limited budgets. Put the two types of organizations together and you have quality, well-researched journalism reaching large numbers of people.
