NPR International News Coverage

In addition to broadcast content, NPR's international coverage is complemented by digital assets, original online content and video. CPB support helps fund NPR's 17 international bureaus; the International Desk and news coverage costs nearly $16 million a year. NPR's international news coverage airs across programs, including Morning Edition (12.3 million weekly listeners) and All Things Considered (11.9 million weekly listeners) and the weekend editions, and is distributed on NPR's digital and mobile platforms.
