The Fundraising Soundbank (FSB) is an open, curated archive of audio fundraising spots, programs produced by stations and public radio networks for immediate broadcast by stations. The FSB is also a center of best practices providing stations and producers with audio examples of successful spots and productions that can be reversioned and updated by stations for local use. PRX developed the FSB in partnership with DEI and PRPD, which continue to provide input and support for the project.

“Jody is the right person to take the FSB to the next level,” said PRX Executive Director Jake Shapiro. “She brings a smart, station-based programming sense along with leadership in on-air fundraising, both skills critical to FSB’s success.”

Jody was most recently the program director at KUT in Austin and served in a similar capacity at Vermont Public Radio. Jody had direct oversight of multiple program schedules, brand management, new media and special projects. Active within the industry, she is the former Chair of the Board of Directors for the Public Radio Program Directors Association. Jody is regularly requested to advise on national programs by NPR, American Public Media and Public Radio International. She is the recipient of various awards, most recently the Gracie Allen Award for Outstanding Community Radio Programming and a Gabriel Award for Vermont Reads!
