NPR API

As a follow up to our spring post about the NPR’s *API work, it’s time to talk more about our progress, goals and methodologies, and how this new content API will impact your work.

Why do we need an API strategy?

How does the PMP work?

Aug 17, 2015

Producers put their content into the PMP (Public Media Platform)—text, headlines, teasers, and links to multimedia assets like audio files and images. When they add content, they also add additional information that makes the content findable. For example: “this is a Marketplace story on the economy by Kai Ryssdal that is the second story in the June 15, 2015 episode of the program.” Producers can also assign permissions to the content, which allows them to control who can access the story in the PMP.

What content is available in the PMP?

Apr 29, 2015

Content from all five founding partners forms the core of what’s available in the PMP (Public Media Platform), with new sources being added regularly. There are stories, videos, images, and audio from more than 30 programs in the PMP, including Morning EditionFRONTLINE, and Studio 360. In addition, new content is constantly being added by program producers and stations—anyone who can receive content from the PMP can also distribute theirs through it. The producer manages their own content, making it available to anyone or to specific PMP users.
