PRI Increases Affiliates

Public Radio International now serves 708 affiliate stations in the U.S. and Guam, distributing programming to more stations than any other public radio network in the country. The new record precedes another landmark for the Minneapolis-based network: PRI will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2003.
PRI was founded in 1983 to develop radio programs and to diversify the public radio offerings available to American listeners. Originally known as American Public Radio, the organization quickly grew from its five founding stations to reach 165 stations at the end of its first year. PRI programs are broadcast and streamed online by its 708 affiliate stations, and are available internationally through the World Radio Network, and
nationwide via Sirius Satellite Radio.
The network's leading offerings include A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison
Keillor, produced by Minnesota Public Radio and Marketplace, produced by Minnesota Public Radio in association with the University of Southern California.
