Good morning, PR pros:

Reddit is testing the livestreaming waters with a service dubbed the “Reddit Public Access Network.”

The Verge reported:

Users who want to tune into broadcasts can do so directly from the subreddit, but top streams will appear on Reddit’s front page throughout the testing period, according to a blog post.
