This past year has been an incredible 12 months for WOSU Public Media. We capped off the Columbus Neighborhoods documentaries with New Americans in January. Then in October, we turned this great project into a weekly series that airs on Thursday night along with the Emmy-winning series Broad & High.

Broad & High produced another viral video on Facebook with the artist profile of Kevin Farrell, who is also know as the world’s top selling Tupperware sales representative Dee W. Ieye.

In 2016, some of our top videos consisted of Facebook Live videos in the aftermath of the attack at Ohio State on November. Videos spotlighting American legends John Glenn and Jesse Owens were also very popular.

Overall in 2016, WOSU’s videos received more than 3.7 million views.
