So happy to have gotten a Nieman write-up for the Texas Standard.
Here’s an excerpt:

To be sure, many of the top public radio stations have built their own collaborations. What distinguishes Texas Standard, says Oregon Public Broadcasting general manager Steve Bass, is “having a group of stations on board before they launch.”
