National Public Radio (NPR) and Public Radio International (PRI) have come to an agreement that NPR will acquire Public Interactive (PI), the public media web services company owned by PRI. PI will become a part of NPR, and NPR will involve PRI in its goal to provide tools, services, and solutions for public radio and television stations, producers, and distributors around the country. PRI and NPR will work together to ensure a smooth transition for PI's staff and clients. PI will act as a neutral utility serving all of public media. It will also continue to operate as a fee-for-services business.
