Introducing Our DS Product Lines

Helping stations win their local markets with Content & Distribution, Revenue & Marketing, Analytics, Editorial, and Preferred Partner products and services.

In the days after the attacks in Paris, NPR deployed on multiple fronts, with special coverage by shows, Newscast reports, continuous updates online, and on-the-ground stories by reporters, producers and hosts in Paris.

We’re excited to announce the arrival of responsive Category Blocks for all Core Publisher sites!

This homepage block will allow stations to create blocks of content on their homepage to display NPR News and locally produced content based on two main filters.

One of the many helpful customizations in the Station Analytics System is the collection of public media specific meta data.  In addition to the default page data, additional information is tracked and stored in Custom Dimensions which can easily be added to standard or custom Google Analytics reports. This post will explain how to add the necessary information to your website so that it can easily be tracked by Google Analytics.

NPR Digital Services is pleased announced a partnership giving NPR Member Stations access to eMarketer Research - an industry leading research firm, providing data, insights and perspective for marketing in a digital world.

Any employee of an NPR Member Station with a station email address can get full access.

More information and the NPR Member sign-up link is available on

You will also be able to view what those trends look like compared to the average station. This chart shows information about website traffic only (and does not include information about streaming or on-demand traffic). 

Offline forms allow staff members and volunteers to enter pledges with options that are not available to your web visitors, including:
