Empower U - VOA Museum of Broadcasting

The can-do, pioneering spirit of journalists and engineers of the 1940s made VOA a powerful voice of truth and fact during a time of propaganda, hate mongering and lies. Engineers based in Cincinnati designed and built a radio transmission facility, thought not possible by their peers. The facade of the classic Art Deco style building has been restored and the interior is being constructed as a museum highlighting the important accomplishments both yesterday and today. The museum also holds one of the most complete inventory of radios dating back to the Marconi era. After the speaker there will be a tour, participants will have the opportunity to see the new Powel Crosley Exhibit which opens in September. For more than 70 years, an iconic building has dominated the landscape on a plot of land located just north of Cincinnati, in West Chester Township, Ohio.  For thousands of area residents, the Art Deco façade has been a landmark.
