KNOY: Many of today's college graduates are ill prepared for the real world. You talked about the importance of that broad liberal arts education. But some people are saying "Well, no, wait a minute, because you've got a degree in English and what do you do?" KIM: Well I think a degree in English is a great thing to be armed with as you are entering the real world. Let me just give you and example: No matter how we evolve technologically, no matter how much medical science moves forward, what I have found is that in every situation I have ever worked in, people who can think clearly and write well are always in demand. And so one of the things we are thinking about is intensifying even further our writing requirements and the way that we focus on being able to read and write with great complexity and clarity. So I don't think that it's correct to say that coming out of a place like Dartmouth College with an English major leaves you unprepared. In fact, I think it's wonderful preparation for the kinds of things that are going to be necessary as long as human beings are around. Thinking clearly, writing clearly. I still have yet to find a situation where we have plenty of people who can do that. We're always looking for people who can do just that. KNOY: What does that mean in terms of how you teach at Dartmouth or what you teach? Do you emphasize particular disciplines, President Kim, or is it just a pervading atmosphere there? I'm just wondering what that means on the ground. KIM: Our formula has been the same at least since William Jewett Tucker in the 1890s. I've been reading recently a lot about his life. And President Tucker basically said, look, lots of other universities are going in the direction of focusing more on research. We will never lose our focus on teaching young people. So the formula really is a very well rounded liberal arts education. In other words, there are places that are shutting down arts programs, that are shutting down humanities programs. We will never do that because we believe that the best preparation for anything, whether you are going to be an ethical financier who fixes institutions like Freddie Mac, or go out to tackle problems like global health, we think that a grounding in liberal arts education where you are studying the sciences, and the humanities, and the arts, and the social sciences, we think that's the proper preparation. You've got to start broadly to understand how the world works.



According to PRX's site, its mission "is to build a fair market for creative audio content and an online community of increasing gains; to create more opportunities for diverse programming of exceptional quality, interest, and importance to reach more listeners."[2]

The company enables terrestrial radio stations to audition pieces and download broadcast-quality audio to share with their listeners over the air or online. PRX catalogs thousands of pieces and allows users to search by topic, length, format, tone and time of the year.

The site also provides a community space open to public radio listeners, producers and stations, where users can discover, rate and review pieces. In addition to providing feedback, the rating system brings work to the attention of stations, who are able to sort pieces by their rating. When a piece is licensed by a station PRX provides the producer with a royalty.

PRX provides stations and producers with tools to manage and monitor transactions, rights, usage statistics and payments within their individual and group accounts.

The PRX site and services launched in September 2003 after a two-year planning, research, and development phase supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Ford Foundation. Since then PRX has received additional support from the NTIA Technology Opportunities Program, the MacArthur Foundation, the Open Society Institute, the Surdna Foundation, and Google Grants. PRX offices are located in Cambridge, MA.

On February 28, 2007 PRX and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting announced the Public Radio Talent Quest.[3] This competition is an open search for new public radio talent, and gives producers the chance to produce a pilot show for public radio. Finalists will be chosen after a five-round competition voted on by fans, public radio professionals and celebrity judges. On May 14, the first round of submissions ended with 1,452 entries. As of May 22, 2007, the Public Radio Talent Quest site had over 14,600 registered users.

On April 9, 2008 The MacArthur Foundation selected PRX as one of its 2008 recipients of the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions. In late November of that year, PRX soft launched PRX 3.0. The launch included their Remix Radio project which provides a sampling of the content available for licensing on the site.

On January 1, 2009, PRX, Inc became a Massachusetts 501c3 nonprofit corporation. Previously PRX had been a project area of the Station Resource Group, a Maryland nonprofit. On January 28, PRX Remix was added to XM Satellite Radio on channel 136. Later that year, on July 19, PRX launched the Public Radio Player 2.0, an iPhone app for public radio developed by PRX, NPR and other public radio partners, and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. On August 11, PRX was included in CPB's agreement with SoundExchange through 2015 as a covered public radio entity for music webcasting royalties.

In 2010 PRX launched two iPhone apps: the This American Life app on February 1 and the WBUR Boston app on July 7. That same year, PRX won a Peabody Award for The Moth Radio Hour[4] Also, PRX was announced as a winner of the 2010 Knight News Challenge for Story Exchange, a crowdfunding journalism project, on June 16. On September 8, 2010 PRX announced $2.7M in new funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the MacArthur Foundation, and the Ford Foundation.

On December 8, 2011, PRX announced $2.5M in funding from Knight Foundation to create the Public Media Accelerator. In May 2014, PRX received a Peabody Award for the Reveal show "The VA's Opiate Overload".[5]

PRX Remix

Formerly known as Public Radio Remix. As of 2011, two radio stations, KPBZ in Spokane, Washington and WREM in Canton, New York, air a full-time schedule of programming from PRX, branded as Public Radio Remix.[6] Both stations are owned by the same organizations as their markets' primary National Public Radio affiliates. PRX Remix also airs on Sirius XM Channel 123.

Several other public radio stations air some, but not all, Public Radio Exchange programming in their schedules.


As of May 22, 2007 PRX has 12,167 available radio pieces, 28,149 members, including 445 radio stations,[7] and 2,782 individual producers [8]
