In collaboration with WUWF Public Media, StoryCorps is returning to Pensacola next week, April 8-19, to record the stories of Northwest Florida’s military community.

The Military Voices Initiative originally launched in 2012. The project provides a platform for veterans, service members and their families to share their experiences.

Since 2008, the Gulf Coast Citizen Diplomacy Council, a program of the U.S. Department of State, has brought a steady flow of international visitors to Pensacola.  A recent delegation has included a contingent of 15 women journalists from Pakistan.

While in Pensacola, the group visited the studios of WUWF Public Media.

Sightline, the reading service based at WUWF, is celebrating its fifth anniversary at the station. 

SightLine volunteers read content of local and regional interest, to area residents with vision impairment or other disabilities which make reading difficult. Pat Crawford, WUWF’s Executive Director, says the decision to take over the service from WSRE, who had it for 18 years, stemmed from cuts in state funding.
