on air: a history of broadcasting in the mahoning valley
Explore more than eighty years of the Mahoning Valley on air – see the equipment used as well as images of broadcasters and their stories.
The modern Mahoning Valley broadcast market is saturated with competitors in radio, television, and digital media. This was not always the case. Mahoning Valley residents heard the first intermittent sounds of local radio programming in the 1920s. Since then, the broadcast landscape has advanced beyond recognition from those first humming transmissions.
This exhibit is open Tuesday through Sunday from Noon to 4:00pm in the Stewart Media Archives Center behind Arms Family Museum.
