Assignment: Radio is where you'll find news and public affairs content produced by students studying journalism and/or broadcasting at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication. Some of these student-produced news reports focus on issues and events on the OU campus; others have a broader interest.

This is the semester's first episode of Assignment: Radio, KGOU's student-produced public affairs program focusing on issues and events on the University of Oklahoma campus.

This week the Assignment Radio reporters talk to three Oklahoma women showing strength in unique ways.

First, Patrick Smith looks into the work of Parents Helping Parents, a local support group for people with children facing challenges. He talks to a woman who was helped by her involvement in the group.

Then, Sarah Hurd speaks to a Native American activist about the University of Oklahoma's use of the word Sooner and the negative connotation it has for some OU students.

And Courtney Kearby tells the story of a woman who supports her family through her stand at the Norman Farmer's market.

Sarah Hurd has worn many hats at KGOU. She worked as Development Assistant, entering pledges and payments. She served as intern for World Views for the Fall 2014 semester, transcribing and webifying interviews. She was also a student in the Radio News class that fall. When Sarah isn’t camping out at the KGOU headquarters she can be found biking around Norman, supporting her favorite local bands and studying for her classes at the OU College of International Studies and Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
