KEDM staff members receive NPR training scholarships
KEDM staff members Sunny Meriwether, news director, and Cynthia Perdue, general manager, have both been awarded National Public Radio scholarships to attend training next month.
Meriwether will attend NPR’s Southern Fly-in for news professionals in Nashville Feb. 5-7. Perdue will attend NPR’s general manager training Feb. 7-10 in Washington, D.C.
“It is doubtful that either of us could have attended this badly needed training without NPR’s generosity,” Perdue said. “I want to give a big thank you to them and to all [who] support the staff and programming at KEDM.”
The scholarships will include travel and lodging.
