The University of Central Florida Metropolitan Center for Regional Studies was created in January 2001 to help foster cooperation between the University and the Central Florida community to promote regional growth. Former Orange County Chairman Linda Chapin became the director of the center as well as the host of the show "UCF Metro with Linda Chapin". The television show was produced in cooperation with the UCF Metropolitan Center for Regional Studies, WMFE Channel 24, and the UCF Nicholson School of Communications. The show began in November 2001 and currently production continues.
