WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) — A major fundraising effort is in the works for a southwestern Ohio museum that focuses on the Voice of America and its role in World War II and the Cold War.
The Hamilton JournalNews reports (http://bit.ly/17RCOV3 ) that the museum's all-volunteer board wants to hire a full-time executive director to head up efforts to continue transforming the Bethany Station site in West Chester Township into a popular modern center.
It's also meant to preserve Cincinnati broadcast, wireless radio and amateur radio history as the National Voice of American Museum of Broadcasting.
The board has begun identifying potential corporate and individual donors for a long-term campaign to raise $12 million.
The VOA began broadcasting information to counter Nazi propaganda, and continued broadcasting during the Cold War era.
