Two eastern Ohio public radio stations are sharing news in morning drive, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Kent State’s WKSU-FM (89.7) began providing hourly newscasts to Youngstown State’s WYSU-FM (88.5) in January. The newscasts are heard during breaks on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.”
WYSU officials tell the newspaper the station didn’t have the resources to originate local and regional newscasts of its own.
WKSU and WYSU are both classical-music stations that also carry many of NPR’s marquee news programs.
