The original guide -- a 35-page pamphlet --  was probably done in the 1950s. The preface text is reproduced below as it appeared in print; updates to the pronunciations themselves come as the editor receives new information and corrections.

PREFACE

This guide is published by the School of Journalism, Ohio University, as a convenient reference for use by busy newsmen and announcers in broadcasting stations. Limited resources made it necessary to restrict the names of cities and towns to those appearing in the U.S. Postal Guide and other names to prominent geographic features of the State of Ohio.
Many Ohio broadcasters assisted in the selection of the preferred pronunciations. In all cases where there was disagreement the one most likely to be accepted locally as correct was selected.
Necessarily in the selection of preferred pronunciations mistakes will be made, and anyone using this guide is invited to notify us of any corrections or additions he would desire so that these changes may be incorporated in a revised edition.
The cooperation of broadcasters in the preparation of this first edition is gratefully acknowledged.
-- School of Journalism Ohio University Athens Ohio
