Stations planning to grow local news staffs and airtime

A new study shows that a substantial number (38%) of public radio stations around the country are planning to increase the size of their news staffs and even more (45%) say they will increase the amount of airtime devoted to local news.  The survey is by my colleague, former San Diego news director Mike Marcotte. See Mike’s research and pretty graphs. Of course, Jim Russell Productions is ready to help stations design their new local news programming.
