CPB Funds Two Public Radio Talent Quest Winners


In spring 2007 we began the quest for the newest public radio talent. Anyone could submit a two-minute audio entry demonstrating “hostiness.” After four rounds and 1,400+ entries from all over the country, three winners were chosen to develop show pilots.

CPB has decided to fund two of our winners! Al Letson and Glynn Washington will each get a year’s worth of funding to produce new episodes of their shows.

Check out the official press release and follow these links to hear the pilots that got Al and Glynn their CPB honors.

For more on each show head over to these sites:
Glynn’s Snap Judgment Radio
Al’s State of the Re:Union

Stay tuned for more fantastic radio!

Thanks to everyone who brought hostiness to our contest, especially our third winner, Rebecca Watson, and our semi-finalists.
