The new NPR app features:

  • The NPR One flow, a continuous stream of curated local and national news, culture and podcasts personalized to the user’s interests.
  • Curated collections of stories and podcasts on the big storylines of the day.
  • Top headlines from the NPR newsroom.
  • Live radio from the user’s local station.
  • A library of podcasts, with editor-picked recommendations from across public radio.
  • Access to NPR’s flagship news shows - Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Weekend Edition and Here & Now.

“This app is a monumental achievement for public radio. It gives our audience unprecedented access to the best content from public radio all in one place. It is where we will build meaningful relationships with our most loyal audiences and welcome new digital audiences into the public radio community,” said Emily Barocas, Deputy Director of NPR One.

The NPR app first launched in April 2008 and provided an up-to-date digest of the news of the hour, with headlines and breaking alerts, enterprise reporting, science, entertainment, music, storytelling and cultural programming, live streams from Member stations, and the most popular nationally and locally-produced podcasts. The former NPR One app was launched in 2014 to blend NPR and Member station news reporting into a rich, localized, on-demand experience.

NPR will continue to update the app to improve and build on the user experience. The NPR app is available on iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets. More information is available on NPR’s about pages.
