WETA Takes On Interactive Radio

WETA debuted “Open Source from PRI” Monday. According to the release, it’s “the first radio program to integrate bloggers, Web enthusiasts, and the Internet transformation of media.”

Hosted by Christopher Lydon, “Open Source” is an hour long show that allows a “worldwide audience to contribute topics, guests, and information that advances understanding of issues and ideas.”

The website touts the program as a “show to invert the traditional relationship between broadcast and the web: we aren’t a public radio show with a web community, we’re a web community that produces a daily hour of radio.”
