Maryland’s Montgomery County is trying to lure NPR across the border from D.C.
NPR, which as we reported awhile back has outgrown its present space, is looking for some 400,000 square feet for studio and office space and is considering several sites.
The Montgomery County Gazette reports the county made an offer to NPR and quotes an official as saying when the network might make a decision is unclear.
The county offered NPR a site in downtown Silver Spring.
NPR wants to consolidate its offices, now spread over two buildings.
In addition to the Maryland site, the network is also considering two sites in the District of Columbia, one in Northwest and the other in Southeast, the Gazette quotes a spokeswoman as saying.
