The Boards of Antioch College and Antioch University agreed in principle to a plan that would transfer ownership of the non-commercial FM radio station WYSO to the College and eliminates any future rights of the University to have claim on Antioch College's campus or endowment.
WYSO operates at 50,000 watts in the Charles Kettering Building at 150 E. South College Street. Ownership of the station and the building remained with Antioch University when an alumni-led group purchased the College and most of its assets in September 2009, more than a year after closure.
WYSO celebrates Hanukkah this Sunday, December 9th with special programming from NPR and Public Radio International.
Tune in at 6:00 PM for Hanukkah Lights. A perennial NPR favorite, Hanukkah Lights features Hanukkah stories and memoirs written by acclaimed authors expressly for the show, as read by NPR's Susan Stamberg and Murray Horwitz.
Then, at 8:00 PM, Mindy Ratner and Bill Morelock explore the customs and music of the holiday on Candles Burning Brightly, from Public Radio International.
Reinvention Stories is a collaborative project between WYSO 91.3 and a team of filmmakers from Dayton, Ohio. Starting on January 9th, WYSO will begin a series of reinvention radio stories, with enhanced companion movies online. Here's a preview of what's to come.
This week on the Sunday Documentary Hour, an election special hosted by NPR's Scott Simon called Groundwork: Democracy Close to Home from The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.
At a time of political gridlick and polarization at the national level, Groundwork explores the tone and flavor of democratic action in towns and cities, where one’s antagonist is not an opposing talking-head or a politician from a state of a different “color,” but a neighbor.
