Nationwide Broadcast and Online Audio Distribution via NPR Affiliates Nationwide

newPSN has joined forces with National Public Radio (NPR) to develop a media channel for the guaranteed distribution of audio public service announcements (PSAs) on NPR’s flagship programs and digital networks. NPR content includes News, Arts, Life and Music focused verticals. All programs have a home on, allowing federal agencies and nonprofit organizations to feature campaign messages alongside relevant content in an uncluttered promotional environment where they will have greater impact.

NPR Podcast Program

Includes the distribution of a 10-second PSA with the download of a NPR podcast which is typically 20 – 30 minutes in duration. The delivery of each podcast and PSA is tracked by downloads and guarantees at least 2.5 million impressions.
