Linda Miller

Director, Network Journalism and Innovation
American Public Media
St. Paul, MN
Linda Miller became a journalist in the small towns of Wyoming, where newspapers were pieced together with hot wax and border tape, and held together by trust, transparency, and a partnership with readers. As director of Network Journalism and Innovation at American Public Media, she is still helping journalists deepen relationships with the communities they serve, albeit with better technology. Miller runs the Public Insight Network (PIN), a nationally recognized platform for crowdsourcing, collaboration and making media more relevant to and reflective of the communities they serve. She is currently focused on growing and diversifying the source network, diversifying the experiences for people in PIN, developing strategic partnerships, and creating a business case for engagement-driven, public service journalism. She joined APM in 2008 after a decade of watchdog and public affairs reporting at The Salt Lake Tribune. She has taught and lectured on journalism ethics and public insight reporting at Arizona State University, University of Utah and University of Wyoming, where she earned a B.A. in journalism in 1992.
