Summary
President and CEO of Public Radio International and the first woman to take the helm of a public radio network, Alisa Miller oversees the development of some 400 hours of programming a week, bringing radio programs to millions of listeners. She is responsible for making PRI programs such as This American Life accessible through satellite radio and for spearheading the development of new programs. An advocate for global news programming, Miller believes diversity in reporting is not just important, it is vital for everyone who seeks to understand and act for good in an interdependent, increasingly complex world. With eye-opening stats and graphs, Miller explains the impact of news media and why we seem to know less about the world around us in this informative TEDTalk.
