Deadly tornados tore through several Oklahoma communities on May 19, 20 and 31, 2013. These are the stories of natural disaster and its aftermath, and of communities healing and recovering.

Staying Ahead of the Storm

This is the Manager’s Minute.

Most of us have to work hard to pay the bills, watch how much we spend and try to set aside some dollars in case of emergency.

In these days of tightening budgets, KGOU is also just one unexpected event away from being in a financial bind.

Severe storms, power outages, equipment failures, changes in regulations or cuts in funding can force KGOU to dip into precious financial reserves.

The margin is shrinking, even as we grow our impact and service to the people of Oklahoma.

If you appreciate the trusted journalism, enlightening conversation and enriching music KGOU delivers, we ask you to dig down and donate, to show you value KGOU and want to help us weather the storm.

Because KGOU is truly powered by people…like you. 

Thanks.

Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.

Dick Pryor has more than 25 years of experience in public service media, having previously served as deputy director, managing editor, news manager, news anchor and host for OETA, Oklahoma’s statewide public TV network. He was named general manager of KGOU Radio in November, 2016.
