WYSO 91.3 FM Turns Relocation Adversity into Opportunity
From its humble beginnings in 1958 as a 10W station located in the student union of Antioch College in Yellow Springs, OH, WYSO 91.3 FM has evolved to become the 50kW NPR flagship station and pre-eminent source of public radio in the Dayton/Springfield, OH, market serving more than 1.1 million people. There were many challenges and hurdles along the way, but station personnel persevered to the benefit of the Miami Valley's public radio audience.
WYSO's most recent accomplishment culminated this year with the relocation of its studios and offices, forced by the sale of the building in which the station was located. After learning of the inevitable loss of the station's space, J. M. Stitt & Associates was retained to manage the project and to design and install the facility. Under the stewardship of General Manager Neenah Ellis, and with essential support from the Antioch University administration and board, we were able to turn this potential adversity into a great opportunity for a much needed facilities upgrade.
The project began by identifying the station's current and anticipated requirements with input from all staff. WYSO's format is a combination of news, information, and an eclectic blend of music from diverse sources that include NPR, Public Radio International, BBC and our own staff. Much of the programming is locally produced, which places unique demands on the WYSO studio facilities when compared to many commercial stations.
