StoryCorps In Cincinnati

Wednesdays at 6:45 am, 8:45 am and 4:44pm

91.7 WVXU was proud to host the national story-gathering project StoryCorps at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for four weeks during April and May 2017. While here, they recorded over 140 conversations between our neighbors, friends and family.

Beginning June 7, we will air a segment of one of those conversations each Wednesday at 6:45 & 8:45am during Morning Edition and 4:44pm during All Things Considered.

Our thanks to the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./US Bank Foundation and The Johnson Foundation for their support.
