Ohio University to Rename Newsroom for FOX News' Roger Ailes

FOX News boss Roger Ailes will return to Ohio University later Tuesday for a ceremony rededicating the student radio and TV newsroom in his honor.

Last fall, Ailes donated an undisclosed amount of money so his alma mater could expand and upgrade what will be called the Roger E. Ailes Newsroom. It is used by the university's WOUB radio station and by journalism students who produce daily news programs for cable TV.

The rededication ceremony is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.

Ailes majored in radio and television at OU and was WOUB's student station manager for two years before graduating in 1962. He's now the chairman and chief executive of FOX News.
