SRG is exploring the costs and benefits of this work, case sutdies of especially successful work, and benchmarking local programming performance.

The Public Radio Exchange (PRX) is a web-based bridge linking public radio producers and stations in a way that allows content to move through the public radio system more "horizontally." It provides a means for stations to find an array of programming outside the major national vehicles. It supports interactive programming collaborations among stations and supports initiatives such as local showcases for innovative work. PRX was launched as a collaboration of SRG and Atlantic Public Media and developed within SRG from 2001 through 2009.
