Oklahoma Engaged Seeks Voter Input for Election Reporting

Jun 5, 2018

This is the Manager’s Minute.

2018 is a monumental election year in Oklahoma. All statewide offices, including governor, are on the ballot, along with judicial, legislative and congressional races.

With so many issues facing the state, interest is high – and we’re meeting that demand with an ambitious and innovative plan for election coverage.

KGOU and StateImpact Oklahoma, along with our public radio partners, KOSU, KWGS, and KCCU have launched Oklahoma Engaged: Project Public Office.

With funding from the Ethics & Excellence in Journalism Foundation and the Kirkpatrick Foundation – we’re taking a new, people-centered approach. We’re reaching out to voters and focusing on stories about issues important to them and their communities, with less emphasis on politicians and the horse race.

So, between now and Election Day, keep listening for in-depth Oklahoma Engaged reports with additional resources online, at oklahomaengaged.com.

Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
