Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

This radio news cast is a great reflection of a day in the life of people across the Island. The stories share news in seven different communities, touching on all three of PEI's counties, from east to west. Three of the seven are original journalism, and two are 'news you can use.' The reports also tell real people's stories -- from a young mother in South Korea with ties to the Island, to a farmer dealing with extreme weather, to some fraud risks Islanders are facing. The other impressive thing is all of these stories were gathered on July 26th, showing our strong news team at CBC PEI.

Resources of the newsroom (money and time) available to complete the story:

Four CBC PEI journalists (filing for multiple platforms) did the reporting on the seven stories in this cast - three in the field, and Laura Chapin on the radio news desk. There were no extra resources that news day.
