WOSU Public Media Expands News Broadcast Reach
WOSU Public Media has acquired WOSX 91.1 FM in Granville, OH. WOSU plans to put the new station on the air Monday, March 2. The move increases the reach of WOSU’s regional radio network to include Granville, portions of Newark and Heath.
WOSU is also announcing a programming change starting March 2 for all of its regional stations: WOSB 91.1 FM in Marion, WOSE 91.1 FM in Coshocton, WOSP 91.5 FM in Portsmouth and WOSV 91.7 FM in Mansfield. These stations, along with WOSX, previously offered an all-classical music format. The stations will now receive global and national news from NPR and Ohio news from the WOSU news team, in addition to the current classical music programming from Classical 101 in Columbus.
The news programming will include NPR’s weekday Morning Edition, and All Things Considered and Weekend Edition every Saturday.
“There is a significant need to bring trusted news to areas of the state that have seen cutbacks at local newsrooms,” said WOSU Public Media General Manager Tom Rieland. “As a strong regional news organization and an NPR affiliate, we’re uniquely positioned to deliver balanced, accurate news about our complex world and about Central Ohio.”
New programming will begin on the air Monday, March 2 at 3 p.m.
