This is the Manager’s Minute.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, many of us are planning special activities with friends and family, and checking items off our end-of-year to-do lists. As you wind down 2016, please consider a gift to KGOU.

If you are already a supporter – thanks for your financial commitment to KGOU and public service media. We hope you might even be able to increase your support to help us upgrade and grow.

Now that the calendar has turned to December, and the fall semester is ending at the University of Oklahoma, we want to thank the OU students working at KGOU.

Storme Jones is host of the noon news, traffic and weather reports and produces special features.

Richard Bassett handles the community event calendars, online and on the air, and does audio engineering for local musical performances.

Both are paid student staff members, and we’re glad they will be with us over the holidays and during the spring semester in 2017.

This is the Manager’s Minute. The election is over, the leaves are turning and the holidays are upon us. November is a month of transition, and so it is this year at KGOU.

We just completed a successful partnership with the League of Women Voters, KOSU, OETA, Tyler Media, Oklahoma Watch, the Oklahoman and the Kirkpatrick Foundation to provide the Oklahoma Engaged election guide.

We say so long to Kate Carlton Greer as she begins a new position at the state Capitol. And we wish Karen Holp the best after 28 years at KGOU.

This is from the Emerita Manager’s Desk. I’m very happy to report to you one last time, for one very important moment. It is my pleasure to introduce to you the new General Manager of KGOU Radio. You may know his name.

Dick Pryor will be the General Manager beginning Monday November 14.

I’ve known Dick for many years. He’s a great person as well as a great journalist. With his experience in public media and his affinity for the audience in Oklahoma and beyond, I know that KGOU is in good hands.  Dick, welcome to KGOU.
