COLUMBUS, Ohio - Jonathan Waters, interim director of The Ohio State University Marching Band, has been named director of "The Best Damn Band in the Land" this afternoon, according to an announcement by Joseph Steinmetz, executive dean and vice provost, College of Arts and Sciences.

"Jon has been an instrumental part of our university's great marching band for many years, and it's obvious today how successfully he is building on the band's excellence as evidenced by the outstanding performances that we have seen this season," Steinmetz said.
