Extension Today – Resource Contributions for NBC4 Partnership Pilot Project are Always Welcome

Extension Today is a pilot project and partnership of NBC4 WCMH-TV, OSU Extension, and CFAES. We are sharing viewer-focused stories about gardening, cooking, and other tips and resources for improving central Ohioans’ gardens, lives, families, and local communities. For the past several months, NBC4 has aired an Extension Today segment on Daytime Columbus each Wednesday, as well as on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Daytime Columbus is a locally-produced talk show which takes a closer look at area businesses, organizations, and resources available in central Ohio. After NBC4 also promotes the show on its Facebook, OSU Extension shares a link to each video, as well as CFAES and Extension resources such as fact sheets, photos, connections with our specialists, etc. online.

We are always looking to make the content on these new webpages more robust for our viewers. If you have any resources you feel might be a good addition to any of the topics at any time, contact Cheryl Buck (buck.19@osu.edu), Extension communication manager. Special thanks to Tim McDermott and Jenny Lobb, educators with the Franklin County office of OSU Extension, for hosting this segment and partnering with numerous guests.
