KCCU, Cameron University’s public radio station, earned a coveted journalism award from the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters, an organization representing radio, television, and online media outlets across Oklahoma. General Manager Ted Riley earned the Best Feature Award in the Radio category for a story he produced about the Museum of the Western Prairie in Altus.
“I’m honored that the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters recognizes the significant journalistic work we’re producing at KCCU,” says Riley. “The Museum of the Western Prairie is one of the Sooner State’s little-known treasures. Producing a feature story about the museum was a joy.”
Riley joined the KCCU staff in August 2007. Under his leadership, the station has earned more than 50 state, regional, and national radio journalism awards, including broadcast journalism’s top national prize, the Edward R. Murrow Award.
“The Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters Awards are some of the most prestigious journalism honors in the state,” says Riley. “This award is a testament to the loyalty of KCCU’s faithful listeners and members who expect quality and depth in public radio journalism. Cameron University’s public radio station is committed to that.”
KCCU is a non-commercial educational station licensed to Cameron University in Lawton. The KCCU network includes radio stations in Ardmore, Altus, Chickasha, Clinton, Lawton, Woodward and Wichita Falls, Texas.
