New Hampshire Public Radio settled a dispute with the owners of Outside Magazine over the name of its podcast and radio program Outside/In.
On March 30, NHPR dropped its lawsuit asking a court to affirm its right to use the name Outside/In. The lawsuit, filed in February, said the statewide network turned to the court after receiving cease-and-desist letters from Mariah Media Network, the owner of Outside Magazine. The letters pressed NHPR to change the name of Outside/In.
NHPR President Betsy Gardella told Current in an email that the network had negotiated a trademark coexistence agreement with Mariah.
The agreement allows NHPR to continue using the name Outside/In for its radio program and podcast, she said.
An earlier version of this post described NHPR as a state network, which erroneously implied that it is owned by the state government. NHPR is an independent, community licensed public radio network that operates transmitters across the state.
