DATV went on the air on March 1, 1978 under the leadership of Dayton resident Roxie Cole. 35 years later the station is still going strong, providing a voice for community members and teaching media skills to local residents. WYSO's Juliet Fromholt sat down with DATV's Dan Suffoletto and Melissa Constantine to talk about the history of the station and how they're celebrating their 35th anniversary.
An annual Dayton festival planned around the start of the NCAA men's basketball tournament has been canceled this year.
Organizers said it was necessary because the NCAA is no longer permitting local sponsorships of public events surrounding the tournament.
The Dayton Daily News reports that the First Four Festival in the city's historic Oregon District was planned for March 17. The University of Dayton Arena is the annual site of the tournament's opening game, a "play-in" contest between the two lowest-seeded teams.
