NPR Story Lab
The NPR Story Lab is looking for great ideas. In fact, we’re an idea hub – generating new segments for our news programs, creating radio shows, and launching new podcasts. We want to collaborate with member stations and independent producers. We want to work with new talent that brings a fresh perspective to NPR. We want to keep innovating and leading in the podcast and radio world. The NPR Story Lab is a true creative studio at the heart of NPR, one that fosters experimentation and continues to evolve the sound of public radio.
Since its inception in 2016, the NPR Story Lab has developed or acquired several series. Here are a few examples:
Now Accepting Applications
NPR is currently accepting applications for new radio shows, podcasts and recurring segments for our news magazine program. Projects can range from being in development to looking for acquisition.
We’re searching for ideas that present new voices, explore innovative approaches, and evolve the sound of public radio. We want projects that will appeal to younger and more diverse audiences, and that reflect NPR’s high standards of public service in journalism and cultural expression
