Curious Cbus

You've got questions. We've got reporters. Let's find answers together.

That's the idea behind Curious Cbus. You submit your burning questions about our region and we’ll work on getting answers, together, through the resources of 89.7 NPR News, WOSU TV, and the WOSU Digital Media teams.

Here's the process:

  1. You submit a question
  2. You vote for your favorite question
  3. We report the story, together

So what are you curious about? Submit your question, vote on what we should investigate next, and see what we've dug up so far.
