After 20 years, BBC moving distribution of World Service from PRI to APM

The BBC has selected American Public Media as the exclusive distributor of its World Service to pubradio in the United States, ending its distribution relationship of more than 20 years with Public Radio International. The BBC told Current today (March 23) that the new five-year contract begins July 1. “I appreciate the support that Public Radio International have given to BBC World Service in the U.S. over the years," said the BBC's Richard Porter, controller, English, in a statement, "and we will continue to work with them on our co-productions, including The World.”
