    APM is certainly still around since PHC was not their only program, though arguably their flagship. From their website: "American Public Media is the largest station-based public radio organization in the U.S., combining multi-regional station operations, national content creation and distribution in one organization."

    It's just they don't own any rights to the PHC name or content, which I assume is all in Keillor's domain.

    As for the show, it depends on whether or not Live From Here is the same show just with a different name. I personally do not consider it to be, although it retains some of the same character.

    PHC is dead, as that's Keillor's franchise. The show's concept lives on with Thile, now called "Live From Here" so that he can travel around the country and host it in different locations. Sort of the same show, not the same show.

    It was just a search for "Live From Here" returning a half dozen links discussing the Thile show in one form or another.
