WUSF Public Broadcasting Seeks World War II Stories
TAMPA - WUSF Public Broadcasting is collecting stories from those who lived through World War II for its Florida Stories series. Stories can come from people who served in the military during World War II, or from people who kept the family together on the home front while loved ones were off to war.
Each week, Florida Stories presents unique and compelling stories told by the people who lived them. These are stories of hope and inspiration, fear and triumph, laughter and tears - personal and intimate conversations between the storyteller and a friend or family member. Florida Stories interviews are designed to be conversations between people who are a part of each others' lives. WUSF provides a trained facilitator to work with the guests during the recording process. Participants are presented with a CD keepsake of the recording.
WUSF began to air World War II stories just before Memorial Day and will continue to air them through Veterans Day in conjunction with Ken Burn's new PBS documentary, The War. To share an extraordinary story with WUSF Public Broadcasting participants can register online at www.wusf.org and click on the Tell Your Story link. Someone from WUSF will call to discuss the story and confirm reservations for recording at the Donis Studio on the Tampa campus of the University of South Florida. Select Florida Stories are aired during All Things Considered on 89.7, Fridays at 5:30 p.m.
