The new five-floor building, located just east of OSU’s campus at the corner of 14th Avenue and Pearl Street (map), includes radio and television studios and community spaces for events.
Flexibly designed to allow for change as media evolves, the dynamic new headquarters focuses on open spaces for creativity and knowledge-sharing.
The new building features the Ross Community Studio, an open 2,200-square-foot engagement space; an expanded newsroom; broadcast studios; a performance studio; and a state-of-the art media learning lab. Experiential activities will grow tremendously as the new headquarters will host dozens of community events each year.
It is with an abundance of caution and concern for our staff and visitors that WOSU has decided to postpone conducting tours of the new headquarters. The continued rise of COVID positive cases and hospitalization numbers is concerning and we do not want to risk anyone’s health given the current state of COVID transmission across Central Ohio.
This pandemic has shown all of us that even the best-laid plans can be quickly altered by spikes in COVID cases. We so appreciate your understanding of this delay and look forward to reopening tours in the near future.
Thank you for your amazing support of WOSU Public Media!
