About PRX

PRX is a non-profit media company specializing in audio journalism and storytelling. We believe strong public media is anchored in journalism, strengthened with diverse voices, and amplified by innovative technology. 

Our award-winning portfolio ranges from iconic public radio programs like “The World,” “This American Life,” “The Takeaway” and “Reveal,” to a growing body of podcast-first productions including the Radiotopia network, home to “99% Invisible,” “Ear Hustle,” and “Criminal.” Each month we reach more than 28.5 million listeners and generate in excess of 70 million podcast downloads per month. 

Founded in 2003, PRX was named one of Fast Company’s "Ten Most Innovative Companies in Media" in both 2015 and 2017, reflecting our critical leadership — as both a technology and content creator — as podcasting has emerged into a mainstream medium. In 2018, we merged with Public Radio International (PRI), a public media network that since 1983 expanded public radio through alternative programming, with an emphasis on international and cultural reporting.

Today PRX works in partnership with hundreds of public radio stations and thousands of independent producers. Since 2016, our work has also included a substantial training program, which is helping journalists and storytellers from across the country and around the world adapt to and succeed in the highly competitive podcast market.

In 2020, PRX introduced PRX Productions, a team of audio directors, editors, sound designers, engineers and producers that specialize in the highest quality audio production and storytelling. We help make audio in all forms: podcasts, broadcast shows, experiential audio, and sonic identifiers for our partners.

PRX is headquartered in Boston with offices in Minneapolis and New York and a content network that spans the globe.

 

Mission

PRX’s mission is to lead changes that expand public media as a trusted source of knowledge, information, and inspiration for all.
