The mission of WYSO is to give voice to our community, our nation and our world with independent news, music and storytelling.


WYSO is seeking a News Director to join our team.

The News Director will be a visionary journalist and skilled manager who will lead our newsroom team of seven full-time staff, which includes four full-time Reporters, a Digital Content Editor, a Morning Edition Host, and an All Things Considered Host; a large network of freelance reporters and editors; and a changing roster of talented paid interns from universities across our region.

With a team that’s firing on all cylinders, a new satellite studio set to open in downtown Dayton later in 2022, and a move to state-of-the-art expanded headquarters in Yellow Springs in 2023, this is an exciting time to join our team.
