More Than A New Home

This visionary campaign will create a community-fueled space - bringing the public to public radio and serving as a beacon of culture and journalism for future generations.

The Building Connections Campaign will raise $26 million to transform our presence in the community and expand our ability to serve by:

  • Building Cincinnati Public Radio's new headquarters - an efficient and sustainable facility designed, engineered and built to engage the community for the immediate and long-term future
  • Creating more opportunities for the public to experience civic engagement, music, arts and culture first-hand
  • Expanding our role as an essential community partner that listens, engages, participates and connects the community
  • Pushing boundaries to expand how we gather and share the news, music and programs our listeners love - when, where and how they want it

Key Features

PERFORMANCE STUDIO

Cincinnati is home to an astounding number of talented musicians. In Cincinnati Public Radio’s new home, musicians will record and perform in an accessible, state of the art studio that is visible to the public gathering space.

NEWS & PUBLIC AFFAIRS AND ARTS & CULTURE STUDIOS

Interviews are the lifeblood of Cincinnati Public Radio’s local programming. Every weekday, WVXU’s Cincinnati Edition provides the only forum for the civil discussion of local issues. The News & Public Affairs Studio will be the dedicated home for these discussions.

The Arts & Culture Studio will enable more in-depth coverage of Greater Cincinnati’s vibrant arts community. Additional studios will allow us to tell more of Cincinnati’s stories.

 

ON-AIR STUDIOS

WVXU’s new studio will be the nexus of local journalism and insights, national and international news and information programming. State of the art equipment will connect local program resources with the most listened to radio programs in the country.

WGUC’s new studio will be the heart and soul of Cincinnati Public Radio's music programming. This new studio will allow local music hosts to present world class classical music performances in the highest quality sound.

PUBLIC GATHERING SPACE WITH PODCAST STUDIO AND COFFEE BAR

The public gathering space will welcome you to Cincinnati Public Radio and serve the community with events, debates, concerts and conversation.

A podcast booth will be available to anyone who wants to create a podcast or work with audio. The community coffee bar and lounge area will be a place for listeners, downtown residents and workers to connect, relax and recharge.
