Historical ties to Public Radio International[edit]

Formerly, much of American Public Media's programming content was distributed by Public Radio International, which itself was named "American Public Radio", or APR, until July 1, 1994. APR was formed by four stations, the Minnesota
Minnesota
Public Radio network, WGBH in Boston, WNYC
WNYC
in New York, and KUSC
KUSC
in Los Angeles, to distribute A Prairie Home Companion. PRI owns and produces numerous programs today, but still also distributes diverse programming from many sources. In contrast, APM, which was founded in 2004, predominantly distributes content that it owns and produces itself; exceptions include The Story with Dick Gordon (which ended production in October 2013), the distribution to US stations of the BBC World Service, and the BBC Proms broadcasts from Royal Albert Hall
Royal Albert Hall
in London.[citation needed] Programs[edit] APM distributes:[7]
