Geez louise: NPR is podcasting lots of programs (even some from PRI and other public programming sources). I wonder how the local NPR affiliates are reacting? I don’t think the podcasts will “compete” with the local affiliates, but I think it will take an enlighted local station management to understand why. Much of the programming, however, is not available in a one-public-radio-station town. In Nashville, we’re lucky that WPLN has both an FM and AM station that provide complimentary programming and podcasts local news features (although they now seem to be hiding the fact as I had to really dig to find that page).
