The event will be broadcast live on Salem Media of Ohio’s 98.9FM The Answer and 104.5FM/880AM The Word.
“Together for Ohio gives the candidates for governor an opportunity to rise above the political fray and speak directly to the voters. No spin. No teleprompters. Just a time for honest conversation about the direction of our state,” said Tom Heyl, General Manager of Salem Media Group Columbus.
