Oklahoma City

OETA's Susan Miller recently featured Oklahoma City's film exchange district, better known as Film Row, on the ONR (Oklahoma News Report).

A monument outside 730 Riverside Drive in Harlem, N.Y. — writer Ralph Ellison's longtime home — commemorates his life and his work. The marker, and many biographical sources, list his birth date as being 1914. But in fact, he was born a year earlier.

Still, events in Oklahoma City — his birthplace — and New York City, where he spent most of his life, are celebrating the centennial of his birth this year.

This weekend, the Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre is presenting the hit off-Broadway sensation “One-Man Star Wars Trilogy” in the Freede Little Theater in the Civic Center Music Hall.

KOSU’s Michael Cross got a chance to talk with Charles Stewart Ross, the creator and star of the Lucas Film-licensed program about what it means to bring the original trilogy to life.

New Store for Oklahoma Storm Season

May 16, 2014

A store dedicated to helping people prepare for emergencies opens just in time for the upcoming tornado season.

Located in Oklahoma City, the Homestand Preparation Station is the first of its kind with potential for more locations and partnerships in the future.

KOSU’s Maude Garrett reports the store goes beyond simply preparing for the next natural disaster.

Walking into Homestand Preparation Station the store is quiet, organized, and peaceful, the opposite of what you would experience after one of Oklahoma's infamous tornadoes.
