Behind the Scenes: Metro Connection

  • May 21, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Affinity Lab U Street

Join WAMU 88.5 Metro Connection Producer Tara Boyle and Host Rebecca Sheir as they take you behind the scenes of an award-winning public radio show that discovers, uncovers and shares intriguing stories from across the Washington region. Hear how they go about producing the program - including how they leverage social media and other online tools to gather story ideas, connect with their audience and create community.

The event is free, but space is limited.
