Bethany Scott and Emily Vinson on NPR Morning Edition

On June 4, NPR Morning Edition featured the story of the Gulf Coast LGBT Radio and Television Digitization Project which was launched in 2020 with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Program. Bethany Scott, head of Preservation and Reformatting, and Emily Vinson, preservation coordinator, led the project to digitize, preserve, and make accessible thousands of hours of Houston’s LGBTQ broadcast history, including recordings that had not been publicly available since their initial broadcast. Over 3,500 unique files were successfully digitized.
