WOSU Night-Time Transmitter Builder, located at 2360 Red Rock Blvd. "The tower and transmitter for the station was moved from near Woodruff Road on campus to the Ohio State University Golf Course grounds in 1938. As the station’s reputation and growth continued, Youngstown’s WKBN paid for WOSU-AM to move its frequency from 570 to 820 kilocycles in March 1941. For the first time in its existence, WOSU wouldn’t have to share its frequency with a commercial radio station. But the agreement meant that 820 AM would be a daytime only station for decades into the future to protect a commercial superstation in Fort Worth, Texas from nighttime interference." -- WOSU Public Media https://wosu.org/about/history/the-birth-of-wosu/
