Do you really have to? Their laws are horrible! More places you can't carry than places you can.haha, however you gotta live in Ohio with a permanent address for 45 days, and you must complete 12 hours of training. A permit from Ky will not be valid in OH once you are a resident of OH. You could get a non resident permit from a state OH honors so you could still carry while your waiting for your OH permit. You can't carry in your car in OH without a valid permit, and open carry isn't like it is here.
