PBS Partners With NPR To Boost Election Coverage

PBS today announced a new strategic partnership to share news content with NPR for its coverage of the presidential election cycle.

The partnership enables the organizations to share digital, video and audio content in new ways. As part of this collaboration, PBS will launch a designated elections-focused digital destination on PBS.org in February that will include content from NPR, as well as from PBS’ signature news and public affairs programs and local PBS station newsrooms across the country. Likewise, NPR will integrate PBS content into its politics section on NPR.org. PBS and NPR will cross-promote both sites through social media tools.

In September, Washington Week will originate from the battleground state of Colorado with a live-audience program from the campus of Colorado College in Colorado Springs.
