Until Next Time...

Aug 1, 2019

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.
