The first NextUp listening party at Corner Kitchen in Dayton.

We've started an initiative to connect and engage with young listeners. We want to meet you. We want to hang out and exchange ideas and smart conversation - whether in cyberspace, over the air, or through events.

We're calling it NextUp. NextUp exists to cultivate the next generation of WYSO listeners, volunteers and members. You're not trapped in the back seat of your parents' car listening to NPR anymore. You're listening now, on your own. You're next.

How Can I Get Involved?

Check out an upcoming event where you can connect and engage with other public radio listeners. Whether it’s a listening party, MeetUp, local music, or volunteer opportunity, we have something in the works to give you an opportunity to slow down, unplug from your device, and discuss current events or connect with others in our community. If we aren't at the WYSO Studios we are at our favorite local breweries, restaurants and independent businesses. Check out our Facebook page to keep up-to-date on our latest events or join our mailing list below.

Want to Join the Committee?

If you like what you hear and want to get more involved, NextUp can always use more volunteers! Have an idea for a new event or series that you would like to organize? Want to help us share all the great things you hear and experience with WYSO? Let us know! Send us a message on Facebook or email nextup@wyso.org.
