Written by Doctor Anonymous on June 26, 2008 – 10:51 pm -

What a great time we had tonight! I would like to thank everyone who participated in the call tonight including Angelo, Brandice, Gabe, Mitch, Travis, Daniel, DG & Court. (Hope I didn’t forget anyone). Even though we talked for two hours, it went by really fast. And, I think that this is a little snapshot of what is going to happen Saturday at Podcamp. Have a safe trip to Columbus. We’ll see you soon! (see video post above)

WOSU Public Media Collaborates to provide DTV converters to Seniors

Written by mary on May 1, 2008 – 9:17 pm -

WOSU Public Media has teamed up with Lifecare Alliance and Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging (COAAA) to provide converter boxes to low-income seniors in central Ohio. Many seniors live on a fixed income and can’t afford cable TV and rely on local news for information. Lifecare Alliance provides Meals on Wheels to seniors and COAAA provides resources and services to seniors in the central Ohio Community.

You can help provide a converter box for a senior by going to the dtv2009.gov web site and requesting coupons for the converter boxes. When you get to the on-line form, check under TV service that *All or some of the TV’s in my house subscribe to one or more pay services.*
This collaborative has special permission to do the project.
When you receive the coupons (it may take up to two months, so time is of the essence) you can drop them off at WOSU Public Media at 2400 Olentangy River Road, Columbus, Ohio 43210.

WOSU will purchase the converter boxes and provide them to Lifecare Alliance and COAAA. Their volunteers will distribute the converters and install them. The volunteers will receive training on how to install the boxes and are best suited to this job because they already have a relationship with the people they serve.

These groups are also asking central Ohio bloggers to blog about it and share it with their readers. Don’t forget to announce your new blog post on Twitter. If you are not yet a blogger, share the link to this post in an email to your friends. Lets get the word out to as many central Ohioans as we can. Thanks!
