Public Radio International to Provide Programming for WYSU

For WYSU’s night owls, a slight change happened on July 1, 2014, when the station switched to Classical 24 from Public Radio International overnight. Listeners now benefit from eleven hosts who carefully craft each broadcast. Lively, engaging, and knowledgeable, they illuminate the music they present with well-researched insightful information, taking care that every program is accessible and stimulating for novices and aficionados alike.
