WYSU Open House at Melnick Hall Draws a Crowd

On Monday, February 22, the staffs of WYSU and the YSU Foundation, new neighbors in Melnick Hall, hosted an open house to show off the new location. 

It is something to be celebrated as it is the first time in WYSU’s 46 year history that a space has been designated and designed specifically to house a public radio station. The open drew hundreds of people to both the WYSU and YSU Foundation offices, including a member of the Melnick family. See additional pictures on our Facebook page.

We will feature many Christmas favorites, such as A Festival of Nine Lessons, and Carols, A St. Olaf Christmas, and A Chanticleer Christmas, as well as highlight a celebration of Chanukah.
