This is the Manager’s Minute.

As the semester begins at the University of Oklahoma, we’re welcoming a new group of students to the KGOU Practicum class, where we teach practical skills in broadcast journalism. Gabriela Tumani will return as a student host this semester, and we’ve added another student host, Dani Ingram, to our team.

Students are guided by program director Jim Johnson, Managing Editor Logan Layden and Development Director Jolly Brown, and will work alongside KGOU reporters Nyk Daniels, Hannah France and Katelyn Howard, and StateImpact Oklahoma reporters Robby Korth, Catherine Sweeney and Beth Wallis.

There’s a lot for our news team to cover this year, including local and statewide elections. Also, we’ve added an Environment and Science beat to StateImpact Oklahoma and are developing new projects to strengthen our focus on local journalism and community service. More on that later.

With the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
