WOSU Headquarters

The WOSU headquarters at 1800 N. Pearl St. in Columbus

The WOSU Public Media headquarters, a five-floor building is located just east of Ohio State’s campus at the corner of 14th Avenue and Pearl Street (map). It includes radio and television studios and community spaces for events.

Flexibly designed to allow for change as media evolves, the dynamic new headquarters focuses on open spaces for creativity and knowledge-sharing.

The new building features the Ross Community Studio, an open 2,200-square-foot engagement space; an expanded newsroom; broadcast studios; a performance studio; and a state-of-the art media learning lab. Experiential activities will grow tremendously as the new headquarters will host dozens of community events each year.


WOSU can arrange tours for large groups and organizations. These tours are for groups of more than 15 people. Submit an inquiry and an events specialist will contact you.
