To the KCCU family,
We never know what life will send our way or where our path may lead. I've been reminded of that firsthand the last few weeks.
I guess the easiest thing to do is just come out and say it: I've accepted a new position elsewhere, and my final broadcasts for KCCU air today.
It has been an honor and privilege to be part of KCCU over the last seven-plus years. In that time, we've had many changes and difficulties, but also many successes. No matter what has happened, we have remained committed to presenting top-quality programming for you, the listeners. I'm proud of that. I hope that all of you will continue to support KCCU and the unique perspective it brings to this region.
I am thankful to all of you for allowing me to be part of your daily lives, particularly in the years since I was allowed to run with an idea and we reformatted our local news into the Texoma Report. In cleaning up some files, I was reminded that the Report began on August 5, 2013, and has now run for more than 1,000 programs. That I am ending my time as the Report's anchor after exactly six years' worth of broadcasts is both coincidental and poetic.
For all of you I have worked with or alongside, for those I have become fortunate to call friends here in southwest Oklahoma, and for those who have trusted me to be a window on the world for you, I can only say thank you. I did not know what to expect when I came to KCCU in 2012, but my time here has been more than I ever could have thought.
I find that saying goodbye brings a sense of finality. But if we do not know where our path leads, we can't know for sure that a departure is truly final.
With that in mind, thank you again, Texoma. That's the news until we meet again.
