Jackie Fortier Joins StateImpact Oklahoma

Nov 27, 2017

This is the Manager’s Minute.

We hope you’ve noticed a new voice on KGOU over the last couple of weeks. Jackie Fortier joined the StateImpact Oklahoma reporting team in mid-November.

StateImpact is a collaboration between Oklahoma’s public radio stations (KGOU, KOSU, KWGS and KCCU) and for six years now has been delivering in-depth, enterprise reporting on policies affecting everyday Oklahomans.

Senior reporter and editor Joe Wertz focuses on energy and environment stories, Emily Wendler on education, and Jackie Fortier will lead StateImpact’s health reporting.

Jackie holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Colorado State University and a Master of Arts degree in journalism from the University of Colorado, Boulder.

She has several years of multi-media reporting experience and has won numerous industry awards.

We’re glad to have Jackie on board and are in the process of adding another StateImpact Oklahoma reporter in the next few weeks.

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