KKNG of kings

The transformation of KKNG to religious radio is just the latest gain for the Oklahoma Catholic Broadcasting Network.


Jerry Bohnen
Larry Sousa had wanted to work in radio news since he was a child. Things didn’t work out that way for the 71-year-old — until now. Decades later, the Norman resident and devout Catholic isn’t just working in radio, but Catholic radio: Oklahoma City’s KKNG 97.3 FM.

Under the Bed

Warning: May cure insomnia.


Rod Lott
Because monsters hiding beneath beds is a near-universal fear among children, it seems ripe for a horror movie to explore. Under the Bed does, yet provokes only yawns. That’s because the concept is best-suited for a youthful audience, à la an episode of Goosebumps, rather than an R-rated treatment.

Close as a Blade

A longtime radio DJ in the metro joins the online revolution with Bladerunner Radio.


Shawn Lealos
The iconic DJ Wolfman Jack was the lynchpin of the 1973 film American Graffiti, bringing together different groups of misfit kids through radio in a way that nothing else could. That sort of connection is what longtime Oklahoma City DJ the Bladerunner feels is missing from today’s radio waves.

Social media gets the finger ... of blame. Again.


Who’s to blame? Answering that question is a pastime every bit as American as baseball and overeating.

Oklahoma’s public defenders


Robin Meyers
I am not talking about those brave, idealistic, underpaid lawyers who work to protect the last and the least, but KFOR, KOCO, KWTV and other local media outlets whose job it has become to defend the honor and reputation of our state when it is under attack by “foreigners” — aka, Australian politicians, lying journalists at Sports Illustrated or even the “unorthodox” Ed Shadid.
