Andile Nomabhunga, of Matatiele, in the Eastern Cape Province, and Dunisani Ntsanwisi, of Giyani, in Limpopo Province, spent the week working with the News as part of a three-week fact-finding project investigating ways to boost the sustainability of South Africa’s community media.
Despite the loss, the News was happy to accept a handful of individual awards, including first place for news coverage for the entire staff.
With the theme of “Contributions, Big and Small,” this year’s Guide to Yellow Springs shines a light on the revolutionary inventions, pioneering patents and novel ideas that originated within the 2.7 square miles of the village.
A recent funding allocation of $566,000 from the Ohio state capital budget has provided an opportunity for WYSO to strengthen its local presence in Yellow Springs and its listening audience in the greater Miami Valley region.
For the 12th year in a row, the Yellow Springs News won the top prize at an annual state competition for weekly newspapers.
The grant money will be used to purchase new broadcasting equipment and have it installed, pay for the “highly specialized” acoustic treatments for the studio spaces and purchase new furniture for the WYSO team.

In collaboration with 91.3-FM WYSO’s Eichelberger Center for Community Voices, the News is publishing excerpted transcripts from WYSO’s series “Loud As the Rolling Sea.”
