Brad Newman

Chief Engineer

Brad Newman is a native of Tulsa, who served our country and used his training and the opportunity to obtain his degrees while in the service. Working at Public Radio Tulsa for over 25 years, Brad's the man who really knows where all the skeletons are buried! In 1985 Brad moved the KWGS transmitter site from Sand Springs to Coweta and increased the power to 50,000 watts. On Oct. 4th 2002, 4:05 pm one of his most memorable achievement was pushing the button to turn KWTU on for the first time - the first HD radio station on the air in Oklahoma. Over the years, Brad has changed the station dramatically as it evolved from tubes to computers.
