This is the Manager’s Minute.
Hard to believe, but KGOU has been in its “new” studios for ten years. We’re glad to be located on the University of Oklahoma’s Norman campus, but after ten years, the equipment we bought when we moved in, is showing its age.
Electronic equipment just wears out over time. The Oklahoma City transmitter needs a new tube, and the whole thing will need to be replaced before long. After ten years, our main audio console and on-air automation computers are becoming less reliable and need maintenance more often.
And, we are always looking for ways to use new technology to deliver a better sound and more effectively produce original content.
Upgrades are necessary, but also expensive. That’s why listener support is so important.
As we near the spring pledge drive we hope you’ll keep that in mind, because KGOU is powered by people…like you.
Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
