Third Coast Conference

The Third Coast Conference convenes in the Chicago area for three days every other fall. Radio producers, audio artists, journalists, documentarians, and students come together, listen to each other’s work, share ideas and expertise, and make priceless connections with future colleagues and new friends. Sessions and discussions range from practical topics to philosophical perspectives, and all include plenty of listening.

The weekend culminates with an awards ceremony honoring the winners of the Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.



It was wonderful to spend three days with nearly 600 radio-makers (a record!) sharing best practices, and brewing up new collaborations. 

Take a peak at the presenters, sessions and other happenings that took place November 7-9, at the Holiday Inn Chicago, Mart Plaza. 

Now dig into the 2014 Third Coast Conf sessions - downloadable - as we post them, and even comment. It's the next best thing to being there.
