There’s been a flurry of activity at NPR Training the past couple of weeks. We’ve been posting, hosting and sharing like crazy as we try to help you improve your craft.

How can you pitch effectively?
Learn from the pros. Our Training team colleague Alison MacAdam gathered advice from editors at NPR for this guide to story pitching. If you are involved in pitching — or fielding pitches — be sure to check it out.


Improve your ears!
We recently released The Ear Training Guide for Audio Producers, which covers two dozen of the most common audio problems.

There are many ways to use the guide:

  • New to audio production? Take your time moving through the guide and learn how to hear — and prevent — each problem.
  • Newsroom manager or experienced producer? Use the guide as a starting point for a larger conversation about audio quality. Listen to the examples together, discuss the problems you’ve encountered, the tools you have available and share tips. How might you help each other prevent these problems in the future?
  • Elbows-deep in production and running into a problem? Look it up in the guide and learn more about a potential solution.
  • Too busy to do anything right now? Come back to it when you have time. Try to listen to a new example each week to keep your ears sharp!

We will host a webinar about recognizing and preventing common audio problems on Wednesday, March 22Sign up here.

We also put out this fun audio quiz, meant to challenge your ability to hear audio problems. Did you pass? Let us know!
