The WOUB studios and offices are located in the Radio-TV building on the Athens campus of Ohio University, part of the WOUB Center for Public Media. The Center is a non-academic unit of the Scripps College of Communication. WOUB services southeastern Ohio, and portions of neighboring West Virginia and Kentucky. The telecommunications center also serves as a laboratory for Ohio University students who are interested in gaining experience in broadcasting and related technologies.
In addition to radio and television, WOUB is also active in distance learning, online services, and media production.
Currently Athens County is located in the Columbus market area, but the TV station can be received in parts of that market, all of the Zanesville market, and portions of the Huntington-Charleston, Parkersburg and Wheeling / Steubenville markets. The station leases commercial fiber line to permit it to be carried in the Huntington-Charleston local packages of the DBS providers, which has greatly increased its range.
Unlike most PBS stations, the channel produces a regular local news cast comprised of university students studying and training on television news casts at Ohio University. With that, they mainly focus on the area around Athens, which is mostly ignored by the Columbus and Huntington-Charleston stations that serve the Athens area.
