Now more than ever, public media is essential
The 89.7 NPR News team has continuously reported through unprecedented challenges and historic events. Through COVID-19 updates, election coverage and stories highlighting racial injustice, WOSU journalists provided our audience with thoughtful, fact-based accounts of the year’s events. As Ohio schools closed, WOSU TV radically changed its daytime schedule to air teacher-curated, in-home educational programming. This unique service provided grade-level, standards-based programming for students, particularly impactful to students with limited internet access. Classical 101 remained a constant companion for those stuck at home—a chance to escape and connect through classical music.
Throughout 2020, WOSU Public Media adapted to provide services for our Central Ohio community. But there is still more work to be done.
Make a gift today to support WOSU Public Media! Thanks to you, we are able to provide public programming that is available to everyone.
Right now, donor support is more important than ever. Federal, state and local grants have been significantly reduced or cut altogether. Without your generosity, WOSU will not be able to continue reporting on local news, airing your favorite programs and educating lifelong learners.
By giving today, you are actively strengthening our community. The largest support for our stations comes from the more than 26,000 individuals and families who contribute annually.
With your help, WOSU Public Media will continue to engage, inform and inspire our diverse community.
