Programming Notes From WYSO
Hello dear WYSO listeners,
Truth matters in this difficult time, more than ever. You must be able to trust the news and the voices that you hear.
At WYSO, 100% of the staff is working. Some are working remotely but we’re all ready to deliver you the news you need and the music you need to soothe your soul.
Here are some programming notes from us:
- Starting this afternoon, you will hear Governor Mike DeWine’s daily briefing, usually at 2 pm. We believe it’s critically important to bring you news directly from Governor DeWine, the Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, Lt. Governor John Husted and their guests.
- We will continue to bring you briefings from the White House via NPR but these will shift to our web platform, WYSO.org. These briefings typically include the President and members of the COVID-19 task force. We’re glad we have a second delivery platform so we can now bring you both briefings every day.
- We are offering a new national call in program from NPR online starting tonight at 9:00 pm. It’s called The National Conversation with All Things Considered. This program will give you the chance to be heard nationally and to hear up to the minute coronavirus news from around the country.
- On Excursions, host Niki Dakota, is featuring music younger listeners will appreciate every day at one pm. It’s called Music for All Ages. Turn your kids on to the world of imagination on the radio, where the pictures are better.
- Also, we are announcing the launch of the WYSO app, available for both iOS and Android devices. Stream WYSO from your favorite device and stay up to date with the news and music you’re looking for right now.
- Also, in case you don’t have an old school radio at home, listen to WYSO on your smart speaker. Just tell it to “play WYSO” or “play NPR.”
Please be in touch with us! Call our listener line at 937-769-1374 and let us know how you’re faring. We may use your voice on the air. How are you? Your loved ones? What kind of self-care are you practicing? Do you have ideas for kid-friendly activities?
