Last spring, the Public Radio Exchange (PRX) began the questfor 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 and given
$10,000 each to develop pilots. Today, two of the three finalists, Al Letson and Glynn Washington,
were chosen by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to develop their
pilots into programs over the course of the next year.
In lieu of issuing a press release with the announcement, PRX and CPB
produced a video featuring the President and CEO of CPB Pat Harrison
introducing the three winners.
