WVSG (820 AM, " St. Gabriel Radio") is an American radio station in Columbus, Ohio. St. Gabriel Radio began broadcasting on AM 820 (the former WOSU) when it returned the station to the air as WVSG on Saturday morning December 17, 2011, after 3 days of silence and concluded its broadcasts on WVKO (1580 AM) also in Columbus on the evening of December 20.
St. Gabriel Radio airs local Catholic programming in addition to programming from EWTN Global Catholic Radio. AM 820 broadcasts with 5,000 watts daytime and 790 watts directional in the evenings and overnights from their respective transmitter sites located near Upper Arlington and Grove City.
St. Gabriel programming was previously broadcasting on WVKO until the purchase of WOSU took place. Hence, St. Gabriel programming on WVKO ceased on December 20 at 6P.M. local time. WVKO was airing continuing announcements informing St. Gabriel listeners to switch to AM 820 until it eventually reverted to a talk format.
St. Gabriel Radio is the first full-time Catholic radio broadcaster in central Ohio.
The transition of St. Gabriel from 1580 to 820 AM concluded on Tuesday evening December 20, 2011 at 6P.M. during the local airing of "The Local Spotlight Show" on WVKO and the program concluding on WVSG afterward. WOSU radio programming as a news/talk format from National Public Radio continues on WOSU-FM while WVKO adopted a progressive talk format on January 2, 2012 at 6 am.
