There have been some bumps in the road, but it should all be worth it.

In collaboration with NPR, many member station – like KUAR 89.1 and KLRE Classical 90.5 – have shifted to a station audio streaming service called Triton Digital. The advantages include improved audio service and functionality once we get past some initial hiccups.

 

We've had to make some updates to our web streams that may cause issues for listeners whose browsers or smartphone apps have saved previous versions of our streams.

The head of NPR is on a road trip across America, which Wednesday brought him through Arkansas where he stopped for lunch with the staff of UALR Public Radio.

It’s a three week trip for network CEO Jarl Mohn and his wife. He spoke with KUAR’s Michael Hibblen about his background, the future of public radio, and the impact the presidential election is having on NPR. You can hear the full discussion above.

MICHAEL HIBBLEN: Tell me about this road trip. What are you doing?

The NPR Story Lab started in June 2015, as an internal incubator for new ideas and experiments in the newsroom. Now we are expanding its scope, giving the NPR Story Lab additional infrastructure and resources. The aim is to strengthen our ability to support innovation across all of NPR's programming, increase collaboration with Member stations, and connect with great producers and talent outside of public media. It is an idea hub where we will generate new segments for the news programs, create pilots for radio shows, launch new podcasts, and introduce new voices to the network.

NPR Oye: Meet Some of the Latinos Behind NPR

Oct 18, 2016

NPR journalists are experts at telling other people's stories. But they also have some compelling ones of their own.

Here, some of NPR's Latino staff members share their family's stories of perseverance, sacrifice, and hard work to achieve the American Dream. They are defined by universal values of pride, hope, and an endless determination to help shape the new American landscape. And they are from across generations, departments, and experience at NPR.

NPR is once again turning the lobby of our Washington, DC, headquarters into a one-day holiday bazaar. Now in its fourth year, All Crafts Considered brings together dozens of artisans, makers and sellers of unique and handmade products— from right around the corner in DC and as far as New York and New England —for a festive afternoon of retail therapy and holiday cheer.

Swing by our building in NoMa on Tuesday, November 15, between 3 and 8 p.m. ET for some holiday cheer and local goods.
