We have joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that inspires individuals, communities and organizations to give back to the charities and causes they celebrate to help create a better world. The idea is simple. Giving Tuesday is a day developed to balance the commercialism of Cyber Monday and Black Friday.

Over the course of the last year there has been a conversation taking shape among NPR and member stations to define the “culture of journalism” that exists within our national public radio system. 

Central to this conversation are several questions being discussed by journalists and public radio leaders from across the public media landscape. A piece written earlier this year by NPR Standards and Practices Editor Mark Memmott lays out these questions:

• Is there a “culture of journalism” at NPR and those member stations that operate local newsrooms?

JPR and the Oregon Center for the Arts at SOU are holding a Grand Opening Celebration and Open House at the new JPR Broadcast Center and SOU Theater Building on Saturday, November 10th.

Southern Oregon University and Jefferson Public Radio will host a town hall meeting with Oregon State Senate District 3 candidates Jessica Gomez and Jeff Golden on Thursday, October 11th at the SOU Music Recital Hall at 7:00 pm.
