StoryCorps Fast Facts

  • The project is called StoryCorps (pronounced “story core”).
  • Since its founding in 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 60,000 interviews from more than 100,000 participants from across the country who visit one of our recording sites. It is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind.
  • Interviews recorded are added to the StoryCorps Archive, housed at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
  • The first StoryBooth recording site opened October 23, 2003 in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. In 2015, StoryCorps operates StoryBooths in Atlanta, Chicago, and San Francisco.
  • Our StoryCorps MobileBooth travels across the country, partnering with local public radio stations in various cities for one month at a time. StoryCorps Mobile Tour began May 19, 2005.
  • With the permission of the participants, edited stories from each booth are broadcast on a partner public radio station. Selected stories are produced for StoryCorps for national broadcast on NPR’s Morning Edition.
  • Selected stories are also produced as StoryCorps Animated Shorts, which are seen on public television stations across the country and millions more online.
  • StoryCorps has released four New York Times best selling books: Listening Is an Act of Love (2007), Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps, All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps (2012), and Ties That Bind: Stories of Love and Gratitude From the First Ten Years of StoryCorps (2013).
  • StoryCorps is an independently funded 501(c)(3) organizations. We ask for a voluntary donation at the end of each recording session to support our work and ensure access to everyone. We fundraise throughout the year to help cover costs of recording, archiving, and preserving each interview and to continue our mission.
