In a move signaling public media’s shared commitment to its audience, NPR and American Public Media announced an agreement that will make American Public Media’s Marketplace Morning Report a daily feature during NPR’s Morning Edition newsmagazine. The change will take place in the fall.
“The agreement represents a new era of collaboration in public radio. There are no other media institutions that offer audiences what we can,” said Margaret Low Smith, NPR’s senior vice president for news . “Marketplace Morning Report offers a natural complement to Morning Edition’s in-depth national and international coverage.”
“This is a positive reflection of our industry’s future,” said Deborah Clark, Marketplace vice president and executive producer. “This is a good development for everybody, especially the audience.”
Many public radio stations already include Marketplace Morning Report during broadcasts of Morning Edition and the change will be seamless for listeners. For the past 25 years, Marketplace Morning Report’s proven passion and expertise for this beat has brought an original voice and comprehensive coverage to business reporting.
