Before he ran for the Ohio Supreme Court over 24 years ago, Tom Moyer was a proud member of the WOSU Friends Board. He was a lifelong supporter of all things WOSU and most recently was excited to hear about our Columbus Neighborhoods documentary series. He was a history nut and once described for me in great detail the 1813 Battle of Lake Erie. It’s due to Tom Moyer that we have television cameras in the Ohio Justice Center and you can watch Supreme Court proceedings on the WOSU Ohio channel. He believed the judicial process required transparency.

In a world of political partisanship and hyperbole, Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer stood out as soft-spoken, humble, and gentlemanly. Every part of the WOSU family mourns his passing.
