WOSU: Columbus Neighborhoods Continues

WOSU Public Media's Emmy award-winning television documentary series, 'Columbus Neighborhoods', will return with six more communities to be featured through 2015. 

The South Side of Columbus, a working-class community that once supported four thriving foundries, will be the first documentary to premiere this fall. The next five neighborhoods to be chronicled are Clintonville, Worthington, Bexley, The Tri-Villages (Upper Arlington, Marble Cliff and Grandview Heights), and 'New Americans' which will look at Columbus' growing immigrant population.

About Columbus Neighborhoods

WOSU Public Media’s Columbus Neighborhoods started as a documentary series to celebrate the city’s bicentennial in 2012 and has grown into an extensive community outreach project with storytelling sessions, public forums, lesson plans, news reports on 89.7 NPR News, and premiere events. This is your resource to help us continue creating community, one story at a time.
