The organizations have recruited several reporters to work on the project, and they have received equipment training. The teams will begin interviewing people, with 5- to 8-minute radio pieces prepared by March.

WPEB, which is operated by the Scribe Video Center, will run the stories. Associated content will appear on the University City Review site, which is owned by Bob Christian, a WPEB board member. Stories will also appear in the Westside Weekly, although nothing formal has been set up.
