Put On-Air Corrections With The Original Stories

When there's an on-air correction, attach a copy of the audio file to the Webpage where the story originally appeared. See the example on this page: http://www.npr.org/2015/11/18/456541300/worlds-largest-jigsaw-puzzle-wildlife-features-fantasy-forest

That way, anyone who comes to the original story will get both a text correction (at the bottom of the page) and an audio correction right at the top.
