NPR Berlin wird seine Station in Berlin anscheinend nicht mehr direkt selbst betreiben, sondern seine Programme nur noch zuliefern, wie dies auch in den USA der Fall ist. Die MABB sucht in den kommenden Monaten nach einem neuen Veranstalter, der dann die Programme von NPR übernimmt.
While NPR remains committed to serving listeners in Berlin, Germany, as a content provider, we are shifting away from our role as the operator of NPR Berlin. Earlier today we announced this shift, but I wanted to share this information with you personally. At NPR Berlin, NPR is currently both the content provider and the station operator. This is the only station NPR operates anywhere in the world and going forward NPR would like to focus its efforts in Berlin solely as a content provider. We anticipate this change will go into effect on July 31.
Over the next few months, the Media Authority of Berlin-Brandenburg (MABB) will accept and consider applications to operate the Berlin frequency. Once a new operator has been selected, NPR anticipates working with the local organization to continue to deliver our signature NPR programming to listeners in Berlin.
