Radio Exchange at Third Coast

The Radio Exchange will be at the Third Coast International Audio Festival conference in Chicago, October 31-November 2, 2002.

In addition to attending conference events, doing lots of listening, and meeting as many producers as possible, Jake Shapiro and Jay Allison of the Radio Exchange will serve on panels at the conference:

What it takes to get your work on the national airwaves. Representatives from NPR, PRI and the new Radio Exchange will explain how to get work on national vehicles and how to distribute stand-alone specials and series. They will address such important issues as pay, producer credits, rights and editorial control. With Peggy Girshman (NPR,) Jake Shapiro (Radio Exchange) and Heidi Schultz (Public Radio International).(click here for the archived RealAudio stream of the “Airtime” panel)

Jay Allison will lead a discussion about the ways in which documentarians must be skilled in the art of trespassing — into the lives of others, between mediums, and across boundaries that exist within their own roles as journalists, reporters, historians, interpreters, and storytellers. With documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Barret, documentary photographer Joel Meyerowitz and co-producer of Ghetto Life 101 and Remorse, LeAlan Jones.
