MPR News fun facts

Posted at 12:45 PM on January 12, 2007 by Bill Wareham

Earlier this week, newsroom researcher Betsy Cole did a Nexis search for me that turned up the following from 2006:

  • -46 references in regional newspapers (primarily the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press) to information that originated with MPR News. These were mostly quotes from MPR interview programs or reporter stories.
  • -71 instances of stories distributed by The Associated Press that contained MPR staff bylines. These showed up in a variety of newspapers around the region (and sometimes beyond. A piece by MPR's Ambar Espinonza turned up on, in a Spanish translation no less.)

It's getting more difficult to escape the reach of MPR News, even if you don't listen to us.
