Media for the Public Good, Inc., the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that produces OutCasting, is working to expand our board of directors. We're growing — we've opened two new bureaus in the past year and plan to increase our production capacity from the current average of eight new programs a year to monthly and eventually weekly production. This will make OutCasting more attractive to a larger number of public radio stations, which will in turn expand the program's influence and reach. We believe in the combined power of traditional and new media, and with the program carried on approximately 48 public radio stations, we're working to become more active in new media.
