VPR Needs Your Input: Take The Public Radio Tech Survey

May 16, 2016

As a VPR listener, you're probably aware that we've been working hard for the past several years to stay ahead of rapid changes in the radio landscape.

Our goal is to continue to provide the news, music and programming you want and in the way that you want it, so I'm inviting you to share your feedback about technology in our eighth annual Public Radio Tech Survey conducted with Jacobs Media.

We are asking you to take the survey and share with us how you use the radio, along with social media, smartphones, tablets, streaming and the web to stay connected to news, entertainment and updates from VPR and other sources. Whether you use all of these media outlets or gadgets or not, we really need your opinion.

I do have to let you know that this survey may take you as long as 15-20 minutes to complete, but you can stop, save your work and resume at any time. Because of the many changes in technology, we are covering a lot of ground. We hope you have the time to help us out and let us know your opinions.

I should also let you know that VPR's participation in this national effort is capped at 700 complete surveys. In recent years you've met that max within the first few hours of the survey opening - thank you! If you're interested or excited about participating, please take and complete the survey asap.

Your responses will be kept completely confidential, and we -- VPR and Jacobs Media -- will never share your personal information with anyone. We'll only use the information you provide to enhance our service.

When you’re ready to take the survey, just click the link below to participate. We hope you'll find it to be an interesting way to reflect on your own changing habits as well as ways VPR can better meet your needs.
