Local radio program to host regional call-in program

ATHENS, Ohio -- There are many important issues facing communities in Appalachian Ohio, but few outlets for communicating these issues. A new radio discussion program on the WOUB-FM Radio Network will give area residents the chance to voice their opinions.

WOUB_colorTune in on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. as people from throughout the Appalachian region give their views about how to improve the quality of life in Appalachian Ohio and discuss projects to make our communities better places in which to live. The program is part of a special series, "This Time Around: Reinventing Community," and listeners are encouraged to call-in and voice their thoughts. How should we use our land and other natural resources? How do we plan for and manage growth? These questions are just a couple of topics that plan to be discussed. Listeners may call toll free, 1-800-825-1771, with questions and comments.

"This Time Around: Reinventing Community" is a year-long series that explores the fabric of community, how and why communities change, and what the future may hold for Appalachian Ohio. Features focus on communities within the WOUB Radio Network coverage area and will include four quarterly call-in discussion programs. Past topics have included niche farming, land restoration efforts, and Hocking County?s growth, just to name a few. A companion Web site is available: www.thistimearound.org that will allow community members to interact online. "This Time Around: Reinventing Community" airs at 8:30 a.m. Tuesdays on the WOUB Radio Network and repeats on Tuesday afternoons at 4:00 p.m. during "Afternoon Edition."

The Ohio University Telecommunications Center, a unit of the College of Communication, operates two television stations - WOUB-TV/Channel 20 in Athens and WOUC-TV/Channel 44 in Cambridge; one cable channel - WOUB II; and six radio stations - WOUB-1340 AM, WOUB-91.3 FM, WOUC-89.1 FM, WOUH-91.9 FM, WOUL-89.1 FM and WOUZ-90.1 FM.
