About the OAB
Learn about the many benefits of OAB membership.
Ohio broadcasters know a simple fact: the Ohio Association of Broadcasters is here for them. No matter how times change, OAB works hard to protect the ability of the state's radio and TV stations to operate their businesses and serve their community.
Established in 1937, OAB is one of the nation’s oldest state broadcast associations. With approximately 95% of Ohio TV stations and 80% of Ohio radio stations as members, OAB advocates on behalf of Ohio’s broadcast industry in Washington and in Columbus. OAB also offers its members services and support they won't find anywhere else — including legal and engineering hotlines, EEO compliance assistance, online training resources, and much more.
As a not-for-profit membership association, OAB is funded through membership dues and fees for services provided. If your station is not already a member, consider joining the more than 300 other Ohio radio and TV stations who already look to OAB a vital part of their business model.
OAB and its members are also committed to meeting the needs of Ohioans. We invite the public to explore our website for information on careers in broadcasting, broadcasting scholarships, and more.
