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.

Spring means severe weather is likely in Oklahoma, and when weather turns violent KGOU will break into regular programming to let you, our listeners, know what to expect.

Through our partnership with KOCO-5, we’ll provide continuous coverage from the KOCO weather team and Chief Meteorologist Damon Lane when conditions warrant.

In addition to regular weather segments throughout the day, we’ll also deliver weather updates and alerts on social media – Facebook and Twitter – and through text messages.

KGOU is a member of NPR’s Tornado Alley project, so we’re equipped to issue severe storm and emergency alerts on mobile phones, HD radios, connected car devices, and in online applications that feature a digital display screen.

You can find weather-related stories, along with forecasts and alerts from the National Weather Service, under the news tab at 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.
