Description
Series Description
"Austin At Issue: Help Wanted was produced as KLRU's unique contribution to a collaborative multi-media project conducted in Austin, Texas in the autumn of 1992. The 'Help Wanted' project involved all of Austin's major print and electronic media outlets. 'Help Wanted' focused on the critical role of education in this community's future economic and social well-being. "Throughout the week of September 20th, the media partners provided blanket coverage on issues affecting our schools. All information was presented in a coordinated fashion. KLRU utilized [its] weekly local public affairs program, Austin At Issue, as an open forum that allowed citizens and community leaders an opportunity to react to the information being provided and to express their own concerns. Special effort was made to insure minority representation in these live forums. KLRU pre-empted its regular primetime programming on the weeknights of the Help Wanted project to present five hour-long programs. Our partnership with the commercial news stations and our local paper was highlighted throughout the campaign thanks to cross-promotion and sharing of news features. "KLRU also produced an hour-long 'electronic town meeting' program that concluded the Help Wanted project on October the 17th. This program was simulcast by all of the commercial network affiliates in Austin and featured live-feeds from three remote locations. Because of the deep and total commitment of all of our strong media resources, our team work approach, and our efforts to involve and engage all Austinites in this critical discussion, we believe Austin At Issue: Help Wanted merits consideration in the public service category of The Peabody Awards."-- 1992 Peabody Awards entry form.
