November Signals Several Transitions at KGOU

Nov 17, 2016

This is the Manager’s Minute. The election is over, the leaves are turning and the holidays are upon us. November is a month of transition, and so it is this year at KGOU.

We just completed a successful partnership with the League of Women Voters, KOSU, OETA, Tyler Media, Oklahoma Watch, the Oklahoman and the Kirkpatrick Foundation to provide the Oklahoma Engaged election guide.

We say so long to Kate Carlton Greer as she begins a new position at the state Capitol. And we wish Karen Holp the best after 28 years at KGOU.

We’re continuing to add new voices, including mine, and with Diane Rehm’s upcoming retirement, we’ll soon welcome a new program, 1A, in her weekday morning time period. Hosted by Joshua Johnson, 1A will begin on January 2.

We’re eager to hear how the program Diane Rehm started evolves with a new name and host, but the same commitment to meaningful discussion.

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