Going for Más!

Innovation, Community Engagement and Fundraising at the 2018 Más Public Media Summit

We are excited to announce the 2018 Más Public Media Summit!

What's in it for you, our dear stations?  You'll get training on new LPRC services and initiatives to drive community engagement and fundraising through innovation and collaboration:
  • STEM Mío: An initiative which brings together game technology, STEM and education for your station to engage its community. 
  • National Underwriting for LPRC member stations
  • Audience Research A la Medida: Tools to get the audience data you need, which major audience measurement companies don't offer! 
Soon we'll publish a full agenda with the list of presenters and special guests who will get us to think outside of our comfort zones (Hint: Think game technology and community engagement!)

Add a major media professionals conference
The summit will take place at the National Association of Hispanic Journalists annual conference. As a member of LPRC you can attend the NAHJ event at a discount rate, but only if you completed the NAHJ membership application. This membership is free for LPRC stations! If you have questions, please contact the Latino desk.

Why is the LPRC Summit now called the Más Public Media Summit?
Getting more support is key to the success and long term sustainability of LPRC member stations. A strong Latino public radio is crucial to building the Más Public Media landscape we envision.

In collaborating with the NAHJ conference, we are also focusing on the wonderful, talented individuals who provide an impassioned service to LPRC stations. We want Latino public media professionals to thrive, and through LPRC's support they can!

¡Nos vemos en Miami!

Public Media Company Partners with WGBH to Form New Purchasing Service Stations

How the LPRC can help

Public Media Company and WGBH partnered to create a new procurement service designed to combine the purchasing power of public TV and radio stations to reduce costs and streamline efforts.

By leveraging their collective buying power, public media stations can save money on equipment and services, and time in the buying process.

What you need to do and what we can do

Don't miss this opportunity! Join the process to determine how your station can benefit. Tell us what you need. Contact us and let us know about your upcoming purchases. With detailed information from all our stations, the LPRC can consider seeking funding on behalf of our members.

If you prefer to do the process by yourself, go online to and complete a form indicating your purchasing needs and timeline. We can also provide help completing this form. 

A deeper commitment to Puerto Rico after Hurricane María

LPRC meets with member stations in Puerto Rico

LPRC's Executive Director Magaly Rivera and Station Services Manager Ileana Rivera held a special meeting this month in Puerto Rico with member stations on the island.

The purpose was to establish priorities and define strategies to ensure the recovery and long-term sustainability of public media in Puerto Rico. More than six months after the catastrophic hurricane, member stations had much to share about lessons learned, as well as many ideas to discuss. 

The meeting was intensive and inspiring. It was amazing to feel their buzzing energy and resilient commitment. And yes, the work & support of all our stations was part of the dialogue

This new effort is possible thanks to For Foundation. Since September of last year, the LPRC has been coordinating aid for our stations with the support of the CPB,  the Knight Foundation and Ford Foundation.
