Producer Resources

About PRX Producers

Both aspiring and established producers are welcome to distribute their work on PRX. When you join PRX, you become a part of a growing social network of public radio listeners, stations, and other producers.

Producers can upload their pieces directly to the site, where stations can listen to them and license them to play on the air. No more burning and mailing CDs to stations and hoping for a response. PRX makes it easy to do everything online, and a paid membership will get you royalties if stations buy your pieces. We are also non-exclusive, meaning you are free to distribute your work through other outlets, too.

A PRX account connects you with public radio colleagues throughout the world. Our new search tool allows you to search for people's skills, availability, equipment, and more. Need to find a friendly reporter nearby or someone who owns a DAT recorder? We help you make those connections. And, you can give valuable feedback to fellow producers by commenting on pieces throughout the site.

Producer Groups

A producer group is a group of two or more producers (for example: two producers working on a music series, a non-profit with a new documentary, a weekly national show, etc.). 

When a producer group joins PRX, each person in the group gets his/her own account that is linked to the group profile. That way, each person can become part of the PRX community and the group gets its own profile and catalog of pieces. Plus, each group has one or more admins who can adjust privileges for each member (e.g., if you have an intern who would love to be a part of the group on PRX but who you don't want to be able edit your piece pages, you could limit that).
