CREATING VALUE FOR

STATIONS

Our Mission

The Station Sourcing Group negotiates favorable pricing and terms with qualified vendors on behalf of public radio and television stations for equipment, software and services. In addition, we provide ongoing support to stations, and we are a source for the latest in technology advances, updates on products and equipment, and related information. 

Value Proposition

Our value proposition to the public media community is our system wide expertise, our strong vendor relationships and our exclusive rights, granted to us by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), to the results of the comprehensive system-wide technology survey commissioned by CPB.

How We Do It

We use the detailed CPB survey data to consolidate potential buying needs for those stations registering with us and then use that information to negotiate preferred discount pricing with qualified vendors. For those stations willing to pool their vendor-specific near/medium-term purchasing plans we also offer our expertise to negotiate volume discount pricing – something individual stations cannot do easily.
