Science Coverage on Public Radio

May 15th, 1986 - December 31st, 1987 | PROJECT

National Public Radio (NPR) has been provided with a supplementary award of $10,000 to cover the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting. The funds cover travel, housing and meals for staff and free-lance science reporters for a week of reporting. And also includes meeting with NPR's advisory panel. An additional $3,000 has been raised from private sources to cover total costs. The AAAS meeting is the largest interdisciplinary science meeting in the world. Support of this project will result in more extensive and thorough coverage of the meetings by NPR for inclusion on prime-time slots of "ALL THINGS CONSIDERED" and "MORNING EDITION." It will also allow the science reporting team to evaluate coverage to date and explore additional methods and reporting techniques to enhance and expand the science programming on NPR.
