“A lot [of] people outside our core demographics are interested in our content,” NPR CEO Ken Stern tells the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. “They’re turned off by our conventions.” In a P-I story published yesterday, Stern described several NPR initiatives of interest to Seattle’s pubradio listeners, each of which launch in October: Bryant Park, a morning newsmag for twenty- and thirty-somethings cohosted by former KUOW reporter Luke Burbank, major upgrades to its music website featuring station-produced programming, and a new service that will deliver NPR content to mobile devices. Seattle’s KPLU and KEXP are partners in the new music website and KPLU helping NPR launch the new mobile service, the P-I reports.
