Supporting, creating, and promoting independent media in Alaska.
Content Producers Guild is an Alaska non-profit created to help independent media producers manage and fund projects, learn new skills, and connect with others in the field. In the past we've produced award-winning radio programs and served as the fiscal sponsors for innovated storytelling projects. Learn more.
CPG's specialty is audio production. We can help you move from a story idea to a sound-rich, fully produced podcast and teach you all of the steps in between. Listen to some of our past productions.
Whether you need to tell your story to funders through grant applications or want to present a complicated narrative to a wider audience, our team of professional writers, editors, and storytellers can help.
Sometimes all you need to get your brilliant idea off the ground is money. CPG is can serve as a fiscal sponsor for grants and other donations. We'll help you do everything from editing your applications to submitting your final reports.
Kids These Days! was CPG's flagship project. The award-winning, hour-long radio program aired on radio stations across Alaska from 2010-2012. Each week, the show featured interviews with state and national experts and sound-rich radio stories to provide an in-depth examination of a range of parenting topics, from childhood obesity to dating as a parent. You can listen to archives of the programs here.
After the initial program ended, the producers and host continued with special projects focused on mental health and being young in rural Alaska. The original program was made possible by a grant from the Association of Alaska School Boards’ Initiative for Community Engagement, an initiative funded by the US Dept. of Education.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act, legislation that set aside certain areas to remain untouched by humans, CPG worked with others around the state to produce Alaska Wilderness Stories. This four-part radio series explores Alaskans' unique relationships with designated Wilderness. You can listen to the content here.
CPG provides fiscal sponsorship to independent content producers of all types, including the youth storytelling program Story Works Alaska.
"CPG's fiscal sponsorship provided invaluable support and structure to Story Works as we transitioned from an all-volunteer, grassroots effort to a staffed organization," said Story Works co-founder Regan Brooks.
