The U.S. Census Bureau’s current daily podcast Profile America Audio will come to an end after 25 years on April 30. Profile America began in 1997 with one-minute audio clips and scripts that have connected Census Bureau data to a wide range of familiar and sometimes overlooked national holidays, anniversaries, observances, celebrations and historic events.
The distribution of Profile America has reflected changing technology and listeners’ preferences, shifting from packaging and mailing audio CDs to instant anywhere, anytime online playbacks and downloads.
In its place, the Census Bureau will be launching a new product. Details to follow.
