FY25 Pricing Message

Dear Colleagues –

I hope this message finds you, your families, friends and co-workers well.  I’m writing today to share that APM will be commencing our annual pricing discussions for the fiscal year in the weeks ahead.

APM’s FY25 pricing season will reflect a modest increase to select news programming, include new products from the BBC and continue to offer a diverse selection of programming opportunities via APM Presents, our curated offering of 15-20 quarterly specials.

In a landscape of continued economic uncertainties, it’s our hope that this offer will help put you in the best position to succeed in the year ahead:

  • The BBC World Service, On Point and APM Classical Programming will reflect 3% YOY increases.
  • APM Affiliation and Marketplace will remain flat to FY24 fees.
  • The Daily will continue to be offered with no carriage fee.
  • APM Presents will continue to be included as part of your overall APM Affiliation.

I’d also like to take this time to share two new offers from the BBC as you plan your FY25 weekday and weekend programming, both available via Content Depot:

  • Topline Zero: beginning Monday, May 6th, APM and the BBC Partner Hub will add Topline Zero, a 1:29 feed of the world’s most important unfolding stories, curated for U.S. audiences and made to complement your schedule and the Morning Edition® clock. Available from 5:18-5:52am ET Monday through Friday, Topline Zero will join the 6 other unique hourly Topline feeds offered every weekday via Content Depot until 11:52am ET. To learn more about Topline Zero including existing feeds 1-6, visit apmdistribution.org.
  • Unexpected Elements: a one-hour weekly show that looks behind the stories of the day to discover a goldmine of scientific stories and connections from around the globe. From Afronauts, to why we argue, to a deep dive on animal lifespans: your listeners will see the world in a new way. Available on Content Depot every Friday and included in your BBC subscription. Give it a listen here.

Your Station Relations Representative will be reaching out over the weeks ahead to share additional information about APM FY25 pricing, answer any questions you may have and discuss APM opportunities that may be of interest to you and your audiences.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership. We look forward to a successful year ahead serving audiences together with you.
