Podcasting is an important tool in the digital landscape for sharing your station content.  We’ve received great feedback from stations regarding podcasting capabilities in Core Publisher.  We’ve heard you and we have taken steps to improve the way Core Publisher manages podcasts!
 

We want to give a special thank you to our diligent podcast pilot group for helping us test these updates on their live Core Publisher sites: Vermont Public Radio, KUOW, KMUW, Michigan Radio, and Southern Carolina Public Radio.

WAMC/Northeast Public Radio, headquartered in Albany, New York, is a public radio network serving parts of seven northeastern states. On March 9, Rakiesha Chase-Jackson, Asli Binal, Michael Fussell, Jackie McBride and Justin Brown, all from NPR Digital Services (DS), paid WAMC a visit to spend some time with their team as part of our Inside/Out Project.

We're happy to announce the release of PMP Push capabilities inside of Core Publisher. Starting today, stations using Core Publisher have the ability to enable Push settings for PMP. Enabling this allows station users to choose, on a post by post basis, which stories they want to push up to the PMP.

This represents an exciting step in the integration of Core Publisher with the PMP. Stations have been able to pull content down for some time, but until now have not had an easy way to get Core Publisher content ingested into the PMP.

We’re excited to announce the arrival of responsive Category Blocks for all Core Publisher sites!

This homepage block will allow stations to create blocks of content on their homepage to display NPR News and locally produced content based on two main filters.

Starting this winter, we’ll be releasing a new set of features for creating, listing, and promoting community events within Core Publisher.

Here are the key features that set this player apart from past Core Publisher stream tools:
