The National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting

During World War II, the Axis powers were distributing a relentless stream of propaganda filled with racism, hatred and brutality via short wave radio. For many radio listeners, this may have been the only information they received. In order to counter the Axis propaganda, the U.S. government turned to Cincinnati entrepreneur and radio pioneer Powel Crosley, Jr. to create a shortwave radio transmission system that could broadcast messages of freedom and democracy from America to oppressed citizens in foreign lands. The Voice of American Bethany Relay Station was born.

More than 70 years later, this building is being renovated and developed as The National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting. Learn more about the museum and the efforts to preserve this local history icon with host Barbara Kellar.
