“WFYI Public Media is Indiana’s largest PBS and NPR member station. Through our informative on-air, online, and community-based resources, WFYI provides a forum for open dialogue about issues that are important to our community. We encourage conversations that promote diverse perspectives. Our award-winning and locally produced documentaries and public affairs programs address a variety of relevant topics; including the high school dropout crisis, opportunities for lifelong enrichment, early childhood education, healthcare, workforce development, the arts, and environmental affairs. Additionally, WFYI proudly bolsters community development by hosting and supporting community events throughout the year, including our signature events; PBS KIDS in the Park and the Ice Miller Indy Wine Fest.”1
We are developing a new application to automatically detect and respond to user inquiries about program air dates and times. The application will poll Twitter and Facebook for user posts matching a predefined text pattern. The application will get its program information from an internal database. A Web based interface to access program schedule data is being implemented to fit a specification designed in collaboration with the EPICS team.
