WGBH Boston acquires Mpls-based Public Radio International


BOSTON (AP) -- Public Radio International says it has been acquired by Boston media station WGBH.

Minneapolis-based PRI is the national content producer, network and service provider for public radio. A statement put out by the two companies Thursday says they will "pursue a shared vision for developing and funding" content for public media.

It says PRI will continue to operate independently as a tax-exempt nonprofit in Minneapolis.

WGBH is known for producing such public television shows as "Nova" and "Frontline."

Financial details of the acquisition were not immediately available.
