Help WOSU Build a New Headquarters
Enhance WOSU Public Media's mission.

For almost a century, WOSU Public Media has served the people of central Ohio — engaging, informing and inspiring Ohioans of all ages and backgrounds. Today, the community is increasingly turning to WOSU to fill a growing media void. 


While we are proud of the content and experiences we offer, we are constrained by our current facilities. To continue to have a vital impact, WOSU must be accessible and visible—we can no longer serve our community isolated in a basement. Now more than ever, public media is essential to bringing impartial news reporting, training and support for children and educators, broadcasting local programs that focus on our community, and have a physical space for the community to convene, connect, and collaborate in central Ohio.


And, now more than ever we need your help to make it happen.


To answer the needs of central Ohio, WOSU is planning a headquarters at 14th Avenue and Pearl Alley. This space will bring local families together for entertaining and interactive learning experiences, showcase local artists and their work, and educate students in a state-of-the art building within walking distance of main campus. This new facility will be an open, collaborative experience and production space at the nexus of campus and community…. that’s the future of WOSU.


Your generosity is essential in creating a New Place. New Space. New Experience. for WOSU and our community. Learn more at
