Many Voices, One Wavelength

Welcome to American Public Media Group (APMG), the not-for-profit parent organization for Minnesota Public Radio and Southern California Public Radio. You may not be immediately familiar with APMG, but you'll likely know us for our stations or programs.


We broadcast news, information and entertainment programming on the radio stations we own in two regions of the country. In fact, we're the largest owner/operator of public radio stations in the nation. We're committed to meaningful local connections in the communities we serve. Our regional services are:

You'll also hear our nationally distributed programs and specials on radio stations across the country and online via the Web from anywhere on the planet. We reach more than 17 million radio listeners a week and deliver 15 million podcast downloads a month! A few of our signature shows are A Prairie Home Companion®, Marketplace®, The Splendid Table®, WitsTM, The Dinner Party Download and Performance Today®. Through our partnership with the BBC, we're the exclusive U.S. distributor for the BBC World Service, connecting listeners to award-winning news from around the globe.

In Minnesota, live audiences can take in our original shows, events, and entertainment at the Fitzgerald Theater, a historic landmark in the heart of downtown St. Paul, MN owned and operated by MPR. A complete list of MPR-sponsored events can be found here.

In the Los Angeles area, SCPR listeners can attend events in-person at the Crawford Family Forum. 


Impact is at the heart of our mission, which is to “enrich the mind and nourish the spirit; expand the perspectives of our audiences; and help them strengthen their communities.” 

Through our diverse programming, we strive to impact the communities we serve. Their communities are our communities!
