An open API for public media

So, according to Poynter, all the big US public media organizations are getting together to work on an open API:

“I really err on the side of openness and inclusiveness,” [CEO of PRX Jake] Shapiro said. Public media, he said, is uniquely suited for this work because of its public service mission — “to make sure content that reflects public dollars is accessible in the most broad and relevant way possible.”

Amen. This open API, or “Public Media Platform” as they’re calling it, brings together American Public Media, PRX, PRI, PBS, and NPR.

Notably (but not surprisingly) absent from this list: a certain large Canadian public media company.
