PRX will begin offering The Ezra Klein Show to public radio stations Nov. 10, the organization announced Tuesday.
Launched as a podcast in 2021, The Ezra Klein Show will be available to stations as a one-hour weekly radio program. The show is produced by the New York Times. Recent episodes have featured interviews with author Barbara Kingsolver and Tom Hanks and have discussed topics such as artificial intelligence and homelessness in California.
“I’m beyond thrilled to see the show stretch into new audiences and new conversations in partnership with PRX,” Klein said in a press release. “I grew up on PRX’s programs and their DNA is braided into the work I do now. This is an honor, but also, in a sense, a homecoming.”
Klein is the founder and former editor-in-chief of Vox, which has also found its way onto public radio through Today, Explained.
PRX will not distribute the show’s podcast. The Daily, the other New York Times podcast available as a public radio program, is distributed by American Public Media.
“We’re proud to partner with The New York Times, Ezra, and the team at ‘The Ezra Klein Show’ to help bring this must-listen program to the public media community,” Jason Saldanha, chief of business development and content at PRX, said in the release. “Ezra explores big questions as necessary as they are engaging, and he will be a welcome voice across public radio airwaves.”
