The next edition of the WYSU Need to Know Newsletter will come out in September 2015!  

We have decided to print three newsletters per year, taking the summer off to promote the station in other ways -- like participating in YSU Summer Festival of the Arts, and planning a WYSU member party for August 26 at Magic Tree in Boardman.  So the September newsletter will be packed with photos and news about our summer activities, as well as information about events on our calendar this fall.
