Mark Twain said, “Everyone talks about the weather, but no one ever does anything about it.” We certainly talk about the weather in Oklahoma, but now a lot of us are having to do something about it.

For decades, the deadliest race riot in American history wasn’t talked about. You couldn’t read about it in most history books; details were hard to find. And it happened in Tulsa, in 1921.

After almost six years at KGOU, our local All Things Considered host and social media coordinator Richard Bassett has left to pursue new opportunities near his family overseas. Gaylord College student and KGOU reporter Ryan Gaylor will soon be taking over afternoon hosting duties.

One-hundred years ago this June, violence devastated one of the most prosperous Black communities in the nation – Tulsa's Greenwood District. The area known as “Black Wall Street” was the site of the deadliest race riot in American history.  

As we near the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, KGOU is urging greater understanding of the tragedy and its significance in state and national history.

NPR’s four primary goals this year are to reach audiences where they are, provide on-demand programming, emphasize diversity, equity and inclusion, and diversify and strengthen fundraising. We plan to do the same at KGOU.

Recent events in Washington, D.C. stunned the nation. The rioting in the Capitol also reminded us of the importance of reliable, timely and accurate reporting, especially during adversity.

Each semester, KGOU provides University of Oklahoma students the opportunity to learn skills in radio news, operations and public relations. Class size is limited so students can receive one on one attention from our professional staff – Jim Johnson, Jolly Brown, Laura Knoll and Logan Layden.

The year 2020 has been an extraordinary year, and tragic for far too many, but through it all NPR has been a constant – keeping us informed and binding us together. A reliable and essential companion.

Now that the general election is behind us, the KGOU and StateImpact Oklahoma team is re-grouping and focusing on the rest of the year. We just came through a remarkable period – with extensive election reporting, and coverage of the coronavirus and historic ice storm. Our team pulled together under difficult conditions.

Well, General Election Day is almost here, and we have an ambitious plan for election night coverage on November third.

Public broadcasting stations across the country have seen listening habits change in 2020 – largely because fewer people have been commuting to work and listening while they drive. We’ve been concerned about how the coronavirus might change the amount of private giving we receive, so it’s been gratifying to see the results of our fall fundraiser.
