TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Students at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University are working on a special report on heroin and opioid use.

The 30-minute, commercial-free investigative report will be broadcast simultaneously on TV stations and radio outlets across Arizona.

Cronkite officials say the event will include a 100-phone center for viewers seeking counseling or more information on heroin and opioid addiction.

Teams of advanced journalism students at the Cronkite School also will produce packages of digital stories and data analysis available on the Web, an accompanying mobile tablet app, and Spanish-language and radio versions of the documentary.

The statewide simulcast of the report is scheduled to air Jan. 13 on the 32 TV stations in Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma and most of the state’s radio stations.
