CBC RADIO 3 / 1.2 / November 29 - December 5, 2002

Incredibly ambitious, entertaining, smart. This should be a weekly destination.

The CBC launches a weekly online magazine called CBC Radio 3.

Spend some time with the navigation, don't just glance at this one. The top right "next" button is the key if you choose to interact with it in a page by page magazine form, which I would recommend.

The "help" section in the table of contents will explain it a bit more.

And make a second visit to absorb the content ... I know I will.

In our first serious effort at multimedia storytelling, Gail Fisher, photojournalist/videographer, along with staff writer Phil Willon, spent a year documenting the hidden world of three foster kids. These kids were cut loose from the system to fend for themselves at age 18. What Fisher came away with was a compelling audio and visual documentation that allowed us to reach a larger audience than just print. The two-part series will air Thursday and Friday (November 21st & 22nd) on ABC Nightline Close-Up at midnight.

This series realizes the storytelling potential when journalists go into the reporting process with a multimedia mindset. That decision resulted in a compelling story in print in the Los Angeles Times, becoming even richer online, and now reaching millions of television viewers.
