Now that our Spring 2015 Pledge Drive is successfully behind us - to the tune of $132,617 - we have started to plan for the next drive.  In Fall of 2015, the WYSU fund drive will start October 12 and run through October 30.

Award-Winning Broadcaster Krista Tippett to visit Youngstown

In 2015, we are more socially divided than ever before – unsure of how to speak across our differences in order to create the world we want for ourselves and our children. That is why Krista Tippett has chosen to examine questions like What does it mean to be human? and How do we want to live? in her Civil Conversations Project.  The award winning public radio broadcaster and author is bringing the conversation to Youngstown Friday, June 12, at 7 p.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church, 323 Wick Avenue.


The Youngstown State University STEM Showcase is scheduled for Saturday, April 25, from 2:00 - 4:30 pm, in Moser Hall, on the YSU campus.  Highlights include the Student Research Project Showcase, the BAJA Car Display, and the Concrete Canoe Display.

The new Electron Microscopy Facility, the X-ray Diffraction Lab, and the new Center for Innovation in Additive Manufacturing will be open for tours.  

New Saturday Programs!

Join us Saturdays for two new programs. “Radiolab” will air at 1:00 p.m., “Bullseye with Jesse Thorn” at 2:00 p.m., and “Fresh Air Weekend” can now be heard at 3:00 p.m.

“Radiolab” is an experiential investigation that explores themes and ideas through a patchwork of people, sounds, and stories. In each episode, Radiolab experiments with sound and style allowing science to fuse with culture, and information to sound like music.
