WYSO gives voice to our community, our nation and our world with independent news, music and storytelling.
We have thirteen full-time staff members and dozens of volunteers. We produce over 40 hours of original local content each week.
WYSO is the Greater Dayton area’s only NPR News station, and we carry their flagship programs, including Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Our own news department delivers local and state news plus public affairs programming and news specials. In addition to NPR, we carry programming from Public Radio International, American Public Media and PRX.
We have thirteen different local music programs, hosted by knowledgeable and dedicated music lovers, most of them volunteers who present hand-selected music from songwriters and bands that reach across generations.
WYSO began broadcasting in 1958, with 19 watts of powers, as a student-run station on the Antioch College campus, on the air for only 4 hours each day. Today, WYSO belongs to the community, with oversight from a seven-member board of directors comprised of community leaders. We broadcast 24/7 with 50,000 watts of power, reaching fourteen counties in southwest Ohio with a potential audience of nearly two million. WYSO also streams programming online 24/7 at wyso.org, available to audiences all over the world.
