Remembering David White

David White

This is the Manager’s Minute.

After becoming a public non-commercial radio station in 1983 KGOU began expanding and improving.

That included installation of the Oklahoma City transmitter in 1993, new automation systems in 1997, and the move of the station’s main studio to Copeland Hall on the OU campus in 2006.

KGOU’s progress was ably guided by General Manager Karen Holp and for 23 and a half of those years the person who designed, installed, repaired and made sure the technology worked – on a tight budget – was chief engineer David White.

David’s know-how, dedication and humor kept KGOU running through those formative years, and when he retired KGOU’s new studios were named in his honor.

On August 17th David White died, but his legacy survives...every day...when you turn on the radio and listen to KGOU - Your NPR Source.
