WOSU and our staff have many connections to the University of Alabama and the city of Tuscaloosa.

Bama native and WOSU reporter Mandie Trimble covered the terrible tornados that leveled portions of Tuscaloosa on April 27th for WOSU 89.7 NPR News. Mandie, along with WOSU’s Chuck Oney have organized a fundraiser with all proceeds going to the United Way of West Alabama to help the victims.

Join us this Thursday, June 2 from 6:00pm – 11:00pm at Woodlands Tavern, 1200 W. Third Avenue in Columbus as Columbus bands come together to help. DONATIONS AT THE DOOR are much appreciated!
