Columbus Collaborative Programs
This unique model builds local partnerships to create programming of interest to the broader community. Examples that can be seen on Columbus Collaborative include the Columbus New Americans programming and Ohio State University programming, like Health Science Frontiers.
As a product of Columbus’ bicentennial in 2012, WOSU Public Media has developed local programming, an interactive website, community conversations and outreach efforts focused on 12-segment Emmy® award-winning documentary series.
Digital television has opened the door to the use of datacasting technology which permits us to distribute additional data within our digital signal. WOSU is one of the Ohio PTV stations currently partnering with the Ohio Emergency Management agency to use this technology to transmit emergency alerting and public safety information around the state.
