NPR One: hand-picked stories based on what you want to hear

by Dave Sparks, KPR Volunteer

You may think you’re pretty app-savvy now that you’ve mastered Pokémon Go, Uber-ed a ride home from the party, or Snapchat-ed your latest athletic accomplishment.  

But does your phone deliver a handcrafted public radio listening experience? It can when you download NPR One, a whole new way to listen to stories, shows and podcasts from National Public Radio and Kansas Public Radio on your cellphone, tablet or other mobile device.
“The NPR One app is an important step in the efforts to digitally integrate local and national content in a form that’s convenient for modern-day listeners,” said Joanna Fewins, KPR Membership Director.
Available free on the App Store, Google Play, Amazon and Microsoft, the cross-platform app allows public radio news and entertainment consumers international access to the stories and programs they want to hear.
App users can select a variety of featured NPR shows, catch up on today’s news, dive deep into selected issues, or search for a particular story that matters to them. At the same time, local community news is seamlessly woven into the listening experience.
Fewins says KPR listeners are beginning to jump on board. “From the report for June 2016 I was able to pull, we know that there were 410 active NPR One listeners who identified a KPR signal as their local station.”
