This is the Manager’s Minute.
We’re proud to announce that again this year, KGOU has won the Arkansas-Oklahoma Associated Press Broadcasters Award for Outstanding Radio News Operation.
It’s the top award for radio stations in the two-state area, and KGOU has now won it ten of the last eleven years. Originally the AP Sweepstakes Award, it was renamed the Outstanding Radio News Operation Award last year.
Also, news director Jacob McCleland won three firsts, host Claire Donnelly scored two wins, and reporter/producer Caroline Halter took a second place award.
