OpenProducer Platform

Fiscal Host: Open Source Collective 501(c)(6)
OpenProducer is built on Newspack, an advanced open source publishing and revenue-generating platform for news organizations. Rather than starting from scratch, we are mixing in additional functionality for radio stations, podcasters, and other types of media makers.

Gus Austin, a seasoned site builder and enabler for creatives, pulled together the founder of Radio Station by Netmix, Tony Zeoli and Radio Station's Lead Developer, Tony Hayes, to collaborate on building a stack similar to and including Newspack. Stations and other types of media organizations would receive all the tools they need to build, manage, monetize, and broadcast with WordPress, the leading open source content management system. With over 59% of all installed content management systems globally, WordPress powers over 35% of all websites.
