"NPR and stations will recruit at the Asian American Journalists Association conference, July 26-29 in Philadelphia, with WHYY as the host station, then share a presence at NABJ’s conference, August 9-13 in New Orleans, to be hosted by WWNO. The Excellence In Journalism conference, September 7-9 in Anaheim, Calif., brings together the Society of Professional Journalists and Radio Television Digital National Association, in collaboration with NAHJ and the Native American Journalists Association. American Public Media will host that village.
With conventions across the country, NPR wants to empower local stations as hosts, Rojo said. He expects each station to put a local flair on the village."
