Why are there ads in the app?

For decades, corporate sponsorship has been an important piece of securing financial stability for NPR and NPR member stations. NPR acknowledges sponsors online, via brief messages on-air, during podcasts and now in the new NPR app. This sponsorship helps to offset production and delivery costs involved in developing and supporting a new app, and acknowledgments reflect NPR's commitment to transparency.
