Public Radio Exchange
The digital revolution has radically changed how information is produced and consumed. Public media, with limited funds, must find ways to meet the challenge of the new and engage effectively with contemporary discourse.
Public Radio Exchange (PRX) is equipping public broadcasting for this era of rapid change. It gathers and distributes original programming, uses technological innovation to speed transactions and expand choices, and is leading public radio to become more interactive and participatory.
PRX is operated by the Station Resource Group (SRG) – an alliance of 40 leading public radio organizations focused on strategy, policy, and national initiatives. PRX was launched in 2002 as a collaboration of SRG and Atlantic Public Media, an innovative public radio production and training organization whose work also includes Transom.org.
The core of PRX’s operation is to provide independently-produced audio programming to public radio stations for broadcast and online use. It has built and maintains a growing catalogue of more than 20,000 nonfiction audio pieces – the largest selection in existence. Using a simple interactive Web platform created by PRX, stations may sample, purchase, and download for broadcasting pieces that range from short commentaries to in-depth documentaries.
PRX is taking public radio in new and stimulating directions, giving a larger dimension to one of America’s most important intellectual resources.
