KGOU Staff Win Statewide Journalism Awards
We strive for excellence every single day, but it's nice when our peers recognize our best work. Journalism awards season is wrapping up, and KGOU once again brought home several trophies in two annual contests: the Associated Press Broadcasters and the state chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
Winning entries were in Investigative, General News, Spot News, Interview/Talk Show, and Government Reporting categories. And for the sixth year in a row, KGOU was named AP's most outstanding radio operation in the Oklahoma-Arkansas region. StateImpact Oklahoma reporters also won top honors; see the full list on our Awards page.
KGOU general manager Dick Pryor was handing out awards at the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence's academic awards banquet, also held this past weekend. Dick filled in as emcee for founder and chairman David L. Boren, honoring outstanding educators and students. The ceremony will be televised on OETA Saturday, May 26 at 8 p.m.
