    CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS — The Public Radio Exchange (PRX) was created in 2003 as the first online marketplace connecting public radio stations across the U.S. with public radio news, documentary, and feature content from a wide variety of independent, established, and emerging audio producers. PRX provides a searchable online hub where local public radio station managers can find content to fill their broadcast schedule, and producers can use simple licensing agreements and receive payments when their work is used. A MacArthur grant will support a strategic planning process, as well as the development, curation, and distribution of content.
