Nikole Robinson Carroll

Nikole Robinson Carroll joined KOSU’s staff in November 2013. She began her professional broadcasting career at WEKU in Richmond, Kentucky, but her passion for radio can be traced back to her childhood bedroom, where she would perform “radio shows” on a tape recorder. She holds a Master of Public Administration from Eastern Kentucky University and has worked for a variety of social service and nonprofit agencies.

As of October 2014, Nikole is the Morning Edition host for KNPR in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This weekend, an event in Oklahoma City benefits a rescue group dedicated to re-homing retired racing greyhounds.  Hounds of the Heartland holds its Greyhound Gala this Saturday afternoon at the Contemporary Arts Center.  Hounds of the Heartland president Emily Hummel says some people might shy away from adopting a greyhound because of misconceptions about the way racing dogs are treated.

Adoptable greyhounds will be mingling among the guests at the event Saturday.  More information can be found at houndsoftheheartland.org
