The National Voice Of America Museum Of Broadcasting  is preparing for the 75th anniversary of the VOA, which started broadcasting Feb. 1, 1942 as part of the Office of War Information.

“We’re planning a series of events and exhibits this year to celebrate the VOA’s commitment across America and the world to embrace best practices in telling the truth in order to let the world decide,” said Jack Dominic, executive director of the museum at the former VOA Bethany Station, 8070 Tylersville Road, West Chester Township.

The first presidential campaign television commercial ran in 1952, during the race between Dwight Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson. TV political advertising has changed dramatically since then, and evolved into a mix of part art, part science.

Veteran broadcasting engineer and executive Clyde Haehnle will be honored Friday when the National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting names its new meeting and exhibit space Clyde Haehnle Hall.

Haehnle, 93, a VOA Museum board member, has been a huge supporter of the museum effort at the VOA's Bethany Relay Station, where he worked as a University of Cincinnati electrical engineering co-op for Crosley Broadcasting. Crosley built the facility in 1942-44 during World War II.
