WOSU Public Media
WOSU Public Media consists of The Ohio State University’s community-supported, nonprofit,
noncommercial public radio and television stations. 89.7 FM NPR News, broadcasting
public affairs programming and in-depth news coverage, is the only 24-hour NPR News
station in Central Ohio. And Classical 101, at 101.1 FM is the only 24-hour classical
music radio station in the area. WOSU-TV, a PBS affiliate which has 12-hours of
children’s programming daily, provides shows in high-definition, along with digital
channels, WOSU Ohio and WOSU Plus.
Since 1922, WOSU has been a key part of the land grant mission of The Ohio State
University – providing lifelong learning well beyond the boundaries of the campus.
Through funding from OSU Athletics, WOSU produces programming for the Big Ten Network;
every commencement is streamed online; many of the performances by the School of
Music air on one of WOSU services; and faculty are often featured on the daily public
affairs radio show, All Sides with Ann Fisher.
Dedicated to enriching people’s lives through programming and community services
that educate, inform, entertain, and inspire, WOSU reaches more than 1.3 million
people a week and serves as a gateway to nonprofit educational and cultural resources
in the Central Ohio community. WOSU Public Media also extends innovative learning
opportunities to the community through unique collaborations. These include “Ready
to Learn” workshops for early childhood caregivers, and a recent partnership with
the Godman Guild to experiment with tablet technology in a local elementary afterschool
program. WOSU works closely with arts organizations across the community and with
COSI, where broadcast studios, a learning lab and public space have been developed.
