Mairead joined the KOSU staff in February 2015.
After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in Media Arts, she spent several years working for various non-profits in the metro area. Mairead's love of public media (both radio and TV) led her to pursue a master's degree in TV, Radio and Film from Syracuse University, and eventually landed her a job doing market and audience research at PBS in Washington, D.C. After four years in the nation’s capital, she moved back to her home state with the goal of getting involved in Oklahoma public media.
Mairead was born and raised in Oklahoma City, and grew up listening to The Spy. She enjoys cooking, craft beer, crime/drama mini-series, and hanging with her husband Sam and dog Jasper.
