Producing election coverage during a pandemic calls for adjustments and experimentation for the times, and KGOU's newsroom rose to the challenge on election night. In a collaborative effort, KGOU brought online viewers Oklahoma Engaged Live: Voice of the Voter throughout the evening as state results came in.
The four-hour webcast featured reporting and analysis from our collaboration partners at StateImpact Oklahoma and KOSU, and discussion by political experts offering their insights. Our thanks to them, to our producer for the evening, Dr. Kerri White at OU Outreach, to the Inasmuch Foundation for major funding, and the Kirkpatrick Foundation and Oklahoma Humanities for additional funding.
As the remaining states' ballot-counting stretches on, KGOU will bring you NPR's continuing coverage tonight and tomorrow beginning at 8 p.m., as warranted.
