Nonprofits like WOSU Public Media are always looking ahead. What are the new opportunities that might best serve our community? I want to spend just a moment looking back.
We’re infatuated by it. We really are. It seems like everyone around the office is talking about Serial: The Podcast. Did he do it? What’s going to happen next? What’s the deal with Jay? This is so exciting!
WOSU Public Media pulled out all its multimedia tools to bring listeners, viewers, and web users the latest on Tuesday’s election. 89-7 NPR News offered live coverage from 8pm to 1am, WOSU TV’s Ohio channel provided live Ohio returns at 10:00, and wosu.org offered a steady stream of election news and anecdotes.
If you’ve been listening to 89.7 NPR News at all this week, you are probably well aware that we are in the middle of our fall pledge drive fundraiser. Pledge drives are an “all hands on deck” type of experience around the station, with a lot of extra hours and late nights for many of the staff, but it’s always exciting and fun.
Right now, when you donate online before the start of our drive, you could win dinner for up to 12 people and beer pairings at Rockmill Brewery in Lancaster.
WOSU Public Media was happy to host the annual meeting of Ohio Public Radio station managers with special guests, Gemma Hooley, NPR Vice President of Member Partnership and Bob Kempf, Vice President of NPR Digital Services who graciously travelled from Washington, DC and Boston respectively to visit with us.
