Long home to a transmitter for radio station WOSU in Columbus, area residents and visitors can now enjoy the sounds of another excellent collegiate radio station.
WKSU recently began broadcasting from call letters W234CX in rural Mansfield. The station can be accessed at 94.7 on your FM dial.
The signal originates north of US30 and broadcasts WKSU to much of the Mansfield area, filling in WKSU’s coverage west of Ashland and south of the station’s tower in Norwalk. Drivers travelling on I-71 should be able to hear WKSU for more of their journey.
