Title of your presentation : Radio-Loud Quasars at high redshift

Nearly all z>6 quasars have been discovered through optical searches,
primarily from SDSS. FIRST J1427+3312 is the only known z>6 quasar
that is radio-loud, I will discuss recent VLA and VLBA observations
which show this quasar is a compact steep-spectrum radio source and
is likely to be very young. I will also discuss recent claims that
the radio-loud fraction of quasars declines with redshift.
