NPR CEO Jarl Mohn visited KOSU's Oklahoma City studios on Friday to get a tour of the station and meet the staff. In this thirty minute conversation, Mohn talks about the importance of non-profit journalism, NPR's recent ratings increase , and the importance of being live and local—in news and in music.

KOSU listeners will hear a new show with a familiar name and voice today. Milk Street Radio is a show about cooking, food, and more that will air from 3 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. It will replace America's Test Kitchen in our programming schedule, but fear not! Listeners will notice America's Test Kitchen founder and host Christopher Kimball is now the host of Milk Street Kitchen. Kimball left America's Test Kitchen in the fall of 2015. We believe listeners will find the shows to be similar in...

As a valued KOSU listener, we want you to know about some upcoming changes to our program schedule that begin this weekend. As many of you know, the $1.3 billion state budget shortfall and subsequent state budget for the new fiscal year dealt a significant blow to many institutions across the state, resulting in layoffs, closures, and more.

As station director during past nine years, I have been privileged to stand alongside a great team of public radio professionals and listener financial partners to preserve and grow KOSU’s media services. Together, we expanded KOSU’s weekday national news programming, strengthened local news content through collaborations such as StateImpact and...

Thanks to Current for featuring our Native reporting project, Invisible Nations!

I had a great opportunity to talk about Invisible Nations and tomorrow's bike tour around Tulsa this morning on KTUL . Watch below:

The final hour of a membership drive is usually the most challenging 60 minutes for the KOSU staff. After a solid week of making the on-air case for support, our voices are weaker and our eyelids are heavier by the end of the drive. So imagine our surprise when NPR’s legendary legal affairs correspondent, Nina Totenberg, and her producer, Art Silverman, strolled into our Oklahoma City studio during the final hour of the spring 2016 member drive to help us reach our goal. Nina was in the city...
