As a pre-show to the Grammys, PRX has its own award ceremony—The Zeitfunks.

Each year we tally up our licenses and listens to give you a picture of some of our top audio stories. Below you’ll find a list of producers, programs and stations who have sold the most in the PRX Marketplace. These numbers are calculated from individual licenses of stories on PRX. Subscription-only shows like This American Life and The Moth are not considered in these results.

PRX has partnered with Hindenburg Systems, who has generously offered the first place winners two-year licenses for Journalist PRO audio editing software as well as copies of the Hindenburg Field Recorder app. Thanks, Hindenburg!

Congrats to our winners and cheers to another amazing year! Join in on the celebration – #Zeitfunk2015

  1. Thanks to all Deutsche Welle Radio users in the PRX universe for making DW Radio #1. It confirms we made the right decision when we moved all of our radio content to PRX. We’re also excited to announced that our “Inside Europe” and “WorldLink” magazine programs have moved to PRX SubAuto. Make sure you subscribe to the series via SubAuto if you are a current PRSS user of the programs. Our PRSS distribution of the two magazines ends at the end of the month.
    Thanks again PRX users!
