PRX handed out Zeitfunk Awards in 18 different categories, and an episode of “Drucker on the Dial” was cited as being the year’s 18th most viewed piece among all of those that were embedded using PRX’s embeddable audio player.
The episode, which first aired in July 2011, was called “Beyond the Comfort Zone.” It included interviews with Gail McGovern, the chief executive of the American Red Cross, and Scott Keller of McKinsey & Co. about management challenges across diverse sectors.
“What’s notable about receiving this honor is that all the other programs in this category—including those from the Moth Radio Hour and Kitchen Sisters—aired on well-known public radio shows with huge national followings,” said Phalana Tiller, the Drucker Institute’s communications manager and the host of “Drucker on the Dial.” “We’re still quite new, and just trying to establish ourselves. So, seeing ‘Drucker on the Dial’ in such big-league company is really validating.”
A one-hour show on management and leadership, “Drucker on the Dial” is available for free on the second Friday of every month on the PRX, an online marketplace for distribution, review and licensing of public radio programming. It is also available for webstreaming through the Drucker Institute’s blog, the Drucker Exchange, and for podcast at iTunes U.
“Drucker on the Dial” features a wide range of well-known guests—executives, authors, academics and others—discussing topics that spring from the headlines. At the same time, the show is informed by the teachings of the late Peter F. Drucker, hailed by BusinessWeek as “the man who invented management.” The tagline for “Drucker on the Dial” is “where timely issues meet timeless principles.”
