The Digital Transformation Program
Funded by CPB and delivered by The Poynter Institute
Thank you for your interest in this program.
To make digital transformation training and resources accessible to even more station leaders and their organizations, CPB has partnered with The Poynter Institute on a new Digital Transformation Program. Up to 75 public media CEOs and their stations will participate in cohorts of 20 stations at a time, with a new cohort starting every three months. This virtual program will teach strategies and best practices to help you adapt your organizational culture to a digital-first, audience-centric mindset. The program has two parts -- a three-month immersion phase, followed by six months where you and your station team will pursue a performance challenge. Poynter will provide coaching, webinars, activities and resources to help your station reach, grow, and engage new, existing, and diverse audiences and convert them to loyal members and donors.
