Thirteen blogger: Neal Shapiro, President

I’m here for a series of public broadcasting meetings and hearing great feedback on our upcoming broadcast of the NY Philharmonic’s concert in North Korea and our partnership with ABC News in presenting the event.

It’s a little bit different than what public broadcasting has done in the past and there is a real level of enthusiasm here among many station executives that we need to try to do things differently. (I guess the theme of “change” isn’t limited to the campaign trail this year and I am delighted our station can help lead the way).

The concert is Feb 26th and I’ll tell you more about how we are doing it as we get closer to the big day.

Meanwhile, back to my next meeting.
