We Report the Answer
What questions do you have about our region and its people you want CapRadio to investigate?
We know you have a lot of questions about the place you live. So do we. Let's find the answers together!
CapRadio's Great Question! is where we invite you to be part of the reporting process. All we need from you is your curiosity.
Here's how it works: You ask the questions, vote on which ones to investigate, and CapRadio will work with you to find the answer.
How do ballot propositions get their names? Why does Roseville have so many car dealerships? Why are there so many standing ovations at Sacramento plays? No question is too big or too small.
