Bulk of NPR Gear Up for Auction Now Posted
There’s more to tell about the auction of NPR equipment.
The equipment list is now live on Rasmus.com.
The auction company is conducting a massive liquidation of NPR gear as the network and employees move to their new headquarters this month, we’ve reported.
More than 1,000 items have been posted.
Much of the equipment was state-of-the-art in 1994, is still in working condition and has been professionally maintained, according to Mike Starling, NPR vice president and director of NPR’s Technology Research Center and NPR Labs.
Starling is overseeing the sell-off and has also identified items such as the Wenger studios from the Studio 5B & 5C complex built for feeding SiriusXM, boxes of unsold T-shirts, office monitoring equipment used and signed by some of the NPR hosts, in addition to pictures from the NPR lobby of hosts, reporters and correspondents. He notes other items are showing up daily.
There’s a walk-through to inspect the items on April 11 and the online auction begins closing on April 15. Items must be picked up at the current NPR headquarters at times directed before April 23rd.
Final additional items should be posted by March 27. Broadcasters interested in a sortable list of the equipment being sold should contact Mike Starling.
