This is the Manager’s Minute.

Late summer/early fall is Oklahoma’s secondary severe storm season, when violent weather can occur, as it does in the spring. This year, we have a new way to notify our listeners in the event of severe weather.

KGOU is one of 27 public radio stations nationwide selected for an NPR initiative, funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, to help keep our listeners safe.

As a member of the Tornado Alley Project, KGOU can now deliver severe storm and emergency alerts through mobile phones, HD radio, and other digital devices, in addition to broadcast alerts.

Our commitment to weather coverage also includes breaking severe storms alerts and reporting through our partnership with KOCO-5 television news and its team of meteorologists and storm chasers.

More weather information, including alerts and forecasts, is  available on our website, KGOU.org.

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.
