Ok, so COSI, Columbus Metro Library and the Columbus Zoo get touted as #1 in the country and well deserved. They don’t rank public broadcast stations in that way, but this week we received word we are #1 in providing Ohioans the news.

The Society for Professional Journalists named WOSU the Best Radio News Operation in Ohio, our reporters won four first place awards for reporting and editing and WOSU TV was awarded the best public affairs program in Ohio for Columbus On The Record (8:30 pm Friday nights). And the competition is not just against fellow public broadcasters, but all radio and TV stations in the state. We have a great news team that focuses on telling the stories that are important to central Ohio. Call us proud.
