The cross-media radio talk show »Crowd Story« originated from a six-month cooperation of the TOP Radiovermarktung and the journalists Laura Bender, Andrin Schumann and Franziska Krüger.

CrowdStory collects stories via WhatsApp and broadcasts them cross-medially on the radio and online. The pilot on the topic KRA$$ has been broadcasted on 98.8 KISS FM and visualized on the CrowdStory website simultaneously.

The project publication (available in german only) answers the question "How can you design and distribute a target group-oriented, cross-media-networked radio talk show format?"

Radio Bremen and the Bremische Landesmedienanstalt awarded CrowdStory with the prize for cross-media program innovations 2015 (Preis für crossmediale Programminnovation 2015).
