Bullied Takes Off
GPRX's Jones talks
Bullied on FoxNews.com
Bullied: Teen Stories from Generation PRX is taking off, both on and off the radio. The hour-long special has been licensed in 16 different cities – from Seattle, to Austin, to Washington D.C. But it's also been spotlighted on the Third Coast Festival library, and featured on FoxNews, both in a written article and as a segment on Jonathan Hunts' show (true story!). The reason for all the pick up? Take a listen.
New PRX Features
Two new features from PRX make everything sharier:
- Listening Goes Mobile. The new PRX HTML5 audio player makes it possible to listen to PRX on most mobile devices, which means anyone can hear your pieces from anywhere. Got a smart phone? Go to PRX.org and try it! The player also has a clean new look and faster load times.
- Open Streaming. To help producers easily share their work, all new pieces on PRX now allow open streaming by default (producers can still opt-out to limit streaming if they prefer). Find out more about open streaming and sharing options like Twitter, Facebook, and the PRX Embeddable Player.
