Learn about the first official VOA broadcast from WLWO on July 1, 1942

Learn why the first transmitters built for the Voice of America were located on a hillside just north of Cincinnati.

When President Roosevelt began to plan for high power radio stations able to reach all parts of the world with information about the United States, he turned to Crosley and his corps of pioneering engineers to make it happen. Crosley had already constructed and operated WLW at 500,000 watts making it the most powerful in the world.  He also operated WLWO, a high-power shortwave station, beaming programming to Europe.
