Honor Roll Keeps Growing

Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters
Jacob McCleland and Storme Jones (l-r)

This is the Manager’s Minute.

We enjoy getting feedback – especially the positive kind – and awards are tangible proof of outstanding work.

Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters awards are hard to come by, but this year KGOU picked up two.

News director Jacob McCleland won first place in General News and host/reporter Storme Jones brought home a first place plaque in the Single Feature category.

Storme also earned two first place awards in the Oklahoma Broadcast Educators Association college student journalism contest – for Radio Entertainment Talk Program and best Radio Newscast.

Over the next several weeks we hope to add more honors to our growing collection. KGOU and StateImpact Oklahoma are finalists for multiple awards in the Society of Professional Journalists and Associated Press broadcast competitions.

If you’d like to see the impressive list of awards our team has won, go to KGOU.org and click on the “About” tab.

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

Dick Pryor has more than 30 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.
