Localore: Finding America


AIR has pulled talent from StoryCorps and NPR to lead the next round of Localore: Finding America, a new network of public media incubation projects launching in spring 2015. With 15 new productions, Localore: Finding America will expand on the innovations of 18 experiments created under AIRís banner since 2010. Meet the team.

Please join us in congratulating 12 independent producers who have been selected for AIR's fellowship for entrepreneurial coaching.

The fellows include mid-career and veteran audio producers who have mastered their craft and demonstrated readiness to create a new venture or expand an existing, independent project.

Raised on the Radio

Raised on the Radio

Ten years ago, the average age of an AIR producer was 42.7. Over the past five years, our network has been filled with young producers who reflect changes in the United States: Thirty-six percent of AIRsters now are beginners in the craft between the ages of 21 and 34, and nearly one in five are people of color. In this month's AIRblast, Andrew Lapin argues that youth radio training programs aren't just good for the indie ecosystem.

Our Purpose: AIR identifies, cultivates, and deploys gifted media-makers from across the US and worldwide whose stories enrich public media and its service to citizens each day.
