First Web Exclusive For Broadcaster
(The Hollywood Reporter) National Public Radio on Monday officially launched ‘All
Songs Considered,’ its first Internet-only program.
The show offers a wide range of musical selections enhanced with musician biographies,
photos, and quotes. The beta version of the program has been up and running since
January, attracting more than 50,000 users per month.
The show is put together by NPR News and NPR Online staffers using feedback from
listeners. An NPR spokesperson said the program will run once or twice a month,
depending on user input. ‘All Songs Considered’ is expected to be followed by several
more Internet-only NPR shows, the spokesperson said.
