We are pleased to announce that the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and NPR have reached an agreement with SoundExchange that will continue to allow public broadcasters to stream (music) sound recordings over the Internet for five years starting on January 1, 2016, when the current agreement expires.

Effective January 1, 2015 NPR Digital Services has revised the annual fees for Music reporting services.  NPR Digital Services is the sole reporting service for all radio stations choosing to have their digital performances of music covered by the CPB blanket music licenses. Billing for music reporting will be based on 4th Quarter reporting stations, and any stations that subsequently report.
