The first permanent StoryCorps booth outside of New York City will be installed in Atlanta next year — located temporarily in a studio at Public Broadcasting Atlanta’s WABE-FM until 2011, when it moves in the city’s new civil rights museum, the Center for Civil and Human Rights, the station announced today. “WABE is family to us,” said project founder Dave Isay in the release. “There is no other station in the country that’s dearer to our hearts that cares more about StoryCorps and public broadcasting.” While New York now has the only permanent StoryBooth, San Francisco is hosting one through next October, and a mobile booth is patrolling Alaska through April.
