Vivian Schiller talked about National Public Radio’s (NPR) vision for the future of public radio and the achievements of NPR’s member stations. She said the current federal budget deficit has made cuts to public broadcasting more likely now than during past budget debates. She further said those cuts would disproportionately impact NPR member stations in small and rural markets. Ms. Schiller also addressed the firing in 2010 of news analyst Juan Williams. She responded to written questions from audience members. close
