KOSU earns grant from Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation

KOSU is expanding, and it’s getting help from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.

As part of a special grant, the Oklahoma City based foundation will donate $150,000 to the costs of KOSU’s new studios on Historic Film Row in downtown Oklahoma City.

“This is a hugely important gift for this project. It’s the foundation of our future, and we are certainly pleased that the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation gift will play an important role in that future,” said Kelly Burley, KOSU Director.

The space, set to open later this year in the Hart Building, will also include a public performance space, expanded newsroom, and state of the art studios that will allow KOSU to continue its mission to create lasting bonds in the community. KOSU, licensed by Oklahoma State University, will still maintain its studio space on the university’s Stillwater campus. An expanded student program is also in the works for the Stillwater location.

“As we do more to create community conversations, our Oklahoma City studios will serve as an important asset,” Burley said.

The Foundation aims to build ethics, skills and opportunities for comprehensive, investigative coverage through investments in media organizations. The gift to KOSU is part of $2.8 million distributed this year.
