Our news and production staff are busy planning WOSU’s multimedia election night coverage.  You can watch, listen and surf online for the best election coverage on WOSU:

  • On WOSU TV, we present at “Live” Columbus on the Record special, 7:30-8pm, followed by PBS NewsHour coverage. News Director Mike Thompson will provide special local reports through the evening on WOSU TV.
  • On 89-7 NPR News, we present a special election show with Ann Fisher from 7-8pm, followed by NPR election coverage all night. Marilyn Smith will anchor updates during NPR’s election coverage. Sam Hendren will cover election day voting and returns, Mandie Trimble will cover the Democrats, Tom Borgerding will cover the Republicans.
  • Online at www.wosu.org , WOSU will use a combination of WOSU content, PBS and NPR tools to bring results and live events to users. Nick Houser will lead this effort online and we’ll be active on social media, posting results, fun facts and more.
  • On Wednesday morning, Steve Brown and Debbie Holmes will provide 89-7 listeners complete election wrap up coverage, if it’s wrapped up by then!
