Antioch College says that a new conservation land easement will ensure that Glen Helen near Yellow Springs will be forever preserved and open to the public.
It's first of two phases designed to protect the popular recreational destination. WYSO's Licensee, Antioch University was a co-granter on the easement. Both the University and College worked with the Trust for Public Land to complete the deal.
Nick Boutis with Antioch College is Director of the Glen Helen Ecology Institute. He says protecting the Glen has been a priority for decades.
Fifty-five years ago, on February 8, 1958, WYSO began broadcasting.
It was students who did all the legwork to get the station licensed and ready. After many years of un-licensed, unofficial broadcasting on the campus of Antioch College, WYSO went on the air with 19 watts of power. They gathered expectantly on the second floor of the student union building in the new studios. At 8pm, Bruce Johanson, script in hand, stepped up to the microphone.
