140 independent producers, organizations, and stations earned royalties, and a total of 548 hours of programming was acquired for broadcast. Not too shabby!
PRX pays royalties on a quarterly basis. Royalties are based on the length of the piece and the number of times it is licensed by stations. Currently the default pricing is $0.50 per minute per license.
