How can my audience listen to my NPR One local news stories on a smart speaker?

The NPR One listening experience that your station provides for listeners from your newscasts and audio stories is also available on Alexa devices using two phrases.

“Alexa, open NPR One”

This will activate the NPR One skill and is available for all Alexa device users.

“Alexa, play the news from NPR”

This will activate our news Continuous Listening Experience (CLE), which also pulls from the NPR One stream. However, this is only available for new users with new Alexa devices.

In both experiences, users are invited to localize to an NPR One-eligible member station. Once localized, users will receive local news stories in their news stream if available.
