The Ohio State University Board of Trustees holds the license to all WOSU broadcast properties. OSU Trustee information including board membership and general and committee meeting schedules can be found at trustees.osu.edu.

The Friends of WOSU Board, an advisory group of Central Ohio citizens, has been an important liaison between WOSU Public Media and the community since 1973.

The board serves as a link to and from the community-at-large, sharing information and opinions on issues and community needs and advising on appropriate programmatic approaches. The board cultivates sources of funding while promoting memberships, sponsorships and donations through special events and other activities and supports communication of WOSU goals among members of the Friends of WOSU, the larger community and The Ohio State University.

Meetings of the Friends of WOSU Board are open to the public. However, portions of some meetings may be closed in order to address confidential information or proprietary matters.
