Michigan Radio and Townsquare Digital, two of the 2022 PILOT Innovation Challenge Winners, will present the details of their winning submissions.

Minutes by Michigan Radio is a new web-based tool that allows newsrooms to search transcripts of local government meetings, saving time on research and giving reporters the ability to create deeper, more relevant stories for audiences.

Townsquare Digital will present Blueprint CRM, a next-generation CRM platform for broadcasters that provides a complete customer relationship management system optimized for ease of use with powerful tools for prospecting, managing relationships and garnering unique insights. The vision for the Blueprint system is to combine the best technology with the unique insights and strategies developed over the past decade building the Townsquare Media business.

The Innovation Challenge is designed to identify startups and growing companies providing solutions to some of the key challenges and opportunities facing broadcasters over the next two to three years. The winners were selected by a panel of broadcast industry representatives.
