Public Radio Exchange

The Public Radio Exchange is an online marketplace for distribution, review, and licensing of public radio programming. PRX is also a growing social network and community of listeners, producers, and stations collaborating to reshape public radio. The mission of PRX is to create more opportunities for diverse programming of exceptional quality, interest, and importance to reach more listeners.

Any radio station, any distributor any producer can add work to a PRX catalogue of documentaries, series, commentaries and features. There are thousands of pieces, on almost any topic.

PRX staff sifts through the site every day, finding work that programmers can plug straight into their schedules. Their editorial board of producers and station staff helps, along with a community of thousands of volunteer reviewers. They send out regular programming suggestions and highlight relevant stuff on the PRX site.

Berkman Fellowship Advisory Board Member Jake Shapiro leads this extraordinary organization.

This project is supported in part by the Open Society Institute, the Center for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ford Foundation, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
