A great question! Thanks for asking.
PRX is an award-winning public media company.
Our Vision is an informed society, connected by shared stories and inspired to improve lives and communities.
Our Mission is to harness technology to bring significant stories to millions of people.
PRX has three strategic areas of focus:
PRX is changing the sound of public radio, championing new, diverse, and independent voices, and pioneering new approaches to program development. Signature shows from PRX include The Moth Radio Hour, Sound Opinions, State of the Re:Union,Snap Judgment, American Routes, and WTF with Marc Maron.
PRX.org, public radio's largest distribution marketplace, offers tens of thousands of audio pieces for broadcast and digital use. PRX is an open system — anyone can join, publish, license content, and earn royalties. Hundreds of public, community, college, and Low Power FM (LPFM) stations buy pieces on PRX for their local air. Watch how it works.
PRX also develops mobile apps for public media, including the Public Radio Player, This American Life, KCRW Music Mine, and leading station apps for WBUR, WNYC, KQED, and more.
PRX plays a key leadership role in and beyond public media, holding board and advisory positions on national committees and organizations, participating in policy work, consulting with local and national groups and prominent funders in the field, and presenting at conferences and blogs.
In 2012, we launched Matter Ventures, a San Francisco-based accelerator program helping mission-driven entrepreneurs start media companies that inform, connect, and empower society.
