Extension Today

Extension Today is a partnership of NBC4 WCMH-TV and OSU Extension in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) at The Ohio State University.

As part of the world's largest non-formal education program, OSU Extension brings the knowledge of the university straight to you! We help make the newest science, research, and knowledge at Ohio State available so all Ohioans can build better lives, businesses, and communities. Extension professionals are located in every county of the state, and we provide practical advice, sensible solutions, and realistic down-to-earth answers.

As a local leader in providing relevant and helpful information to its viewers, NBC4 is partnering with OSU Extension to share stories with tips, resources, and even recipes for improving your life, your garden, your family, and your community.

NBC4 will air a special Extension Today segment on Daytime Columbus each Wednesday, as well as on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Daytime Columbus is a locally-produced talk show which takes a closer look at area businesses, organizations, and resources available in central Ohio, and is delivered by NBC4 WCMH-TV every weekday at 12:30pm.

OSU Extension will share a link to each video, as well as special resources such as fact sheets, photos, connections with CFAES specialists, etc. online.

Food safety at picnics and other outdoor events is super important this time of year! We may like to bask in the summer heat and sunshine, but it’s not so good for your picnic food. Jenny Lobb talks with Sanja Ilic, Extension state food safety specialist, about what you need to know when hosting a summer picnic and/or bringing food to an outdoor party. Think ice, packing your cooler, knowing correct temps, and storing leftovers.

Check out the full Extension Today playlist online – including the Daytime Columbus version of this segment. We will add more videos and more resources throughout the next few months. Check in often to learn more!
