Your Voice Ohio


Starting a dialogue on Ohio's opioid crisis
Ohio has been one of the hardest hit states in the country when it comes to opioid abuse and fatalities.  The Ohio Media Project is spearheading a new collaboration among newspapers, television stations and radio stations, including WKSU, to change the way the epidemic is reported, combining resources to better serve our audiences.  We're beginning this new effort with an area that numbers clearly show is struggling the most:  the Mahoning Valley. The goal is to not just cover the problem but present potential solutions to be considered and encourage conversation in the communities we serve.


Ways to Connect


This election cycle, WKSU is teaming with nearly a dozen newspapers, radio and TV stations across Ohio to help re-engage citizens in the political process.

The project YourVoteOhio officially launched on Sunday and included a piece from Toledo Blade political reporter Tom Troy looking at the dynamics of political advertising.


Political ad spending has been growing exponentially in Ohio and nationwide -- especially among the outside groups airing more than 80 percent of the ads in the GOP primaries. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze spoke with the head of one of the groups trying to keep up with the claims made in those ads, as well as those made in speeches, debates and rallies.
