This is a friendly reminder to complete the CPB System Technology Assessment, if you have not done so already. LPRC, and our partners at CPB, appreciate that this effort takes time out of your already over-full schedule, but we very much welcome the opportunity to add your station’s experience to CPB’s assessment.
If you have run into problems with the survey format, or have experienced other challenges that are preventing you from completing the assessment, please let LPRC know. We’ll be happy to work with you, and make sure you’re connected with the Eagle Hill survey implementers to work through these challenges with you.
As you may be aware, the assessment contains two surveys: (1) the Strategy and Operations Survey and (2) the Technology Survey.
The Strategy and Operations Survey is much shorter than the Technology Survey (we estimate about 30min). We encourage you to start with the Strategy and Operations Survey, as a good way to start thinking about the future, and the overall goals of this Assessment. The Technology Survey forms the backbone of this Assessment, and will take some time to complete (especially depending on the complexity of your technology system).
- Help the public media community educate other stakeholders about the state and needs of the public media community, underpin initiatives to improve and fill identified gaps, and to develop support for public media’s equipment and financial needs
- Understand your peer group. CPB will share aggregate data (with appropriate confidentiality safeguards) later this spring so you can see how your station compares with peers
- Help the public media community understand its current state, as well as anticipate future needs to understand how to surmount challenges and seize opportunities
We encourage you to reach out to the Eagle Hill Consulting survey team through their helpdesk function at CPBTechSurvey@eaglehillconsulting.com
if you have any questions.
The CPB System Technology Assessment
takes stock of public television and radio stations’ production and broadcast equipment, and their financial strategies to support future equipment. The results will inform CPB’s decision-making, keep up with technological changes and develop future operating models.
Please help LPRC make sure that this system-wide assessment includes the Latino stations!
