About Front and Center: In depth reporting from the Great Lakes

Front and Center is an in-depth reporting project covering issues of importance to the Great Lakes region. Starting in June of 2011, Front and Center launched web features, radio documentaries and live call-in specials broadcast on WBEZ and public radio stations throughout the Great Lakes region. Our first series focused on water and our second series focused on work. Next we will be tackling the topic of literacy. Have a story suggestion?  Email us at aaguilar (at)
