Judith Nole

Development Director

According to Judith Nole’s family, they have to leave the state to REALLY get away from her.  Judith has recorded Public Radio Tulsa’s underwriting since the early 2000’s, and when you hear a woman say “Support for Public Radio Tulsa is provided by…,” it is her voice you are hearing.


As the Development Director at Public Radio Tulsa, Judith is responsible for the vital listener support on which the stations depend.  And she’s passionate about both Public Radio Tulsa and the community of PRT listeners and contributors.  She loves that feeling of connectedness when, beginning a conversation with, “So I heard this story on Morning Edition today…” someone chimes in, “ME TOO!  Wasn’t that amazing?!?”  Her list of “driveway moments” grows daily, and she’s finally stopped apologizing for being late because she was sitting in the car, listening to The Moth Radio Hour.  


Not surprising, then, that Judith has worked at Public Radio Tulsa – with a few years off here and there – much of her adult life.  She began as a student announcer as a senior at The University of Tulsa in the early 1980’s, was the Development Director in the mid-80’s, and at various times was the local host for Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Weekend Edition.  


Besides Public Radio Tulsa, Judith loves old limestone buildings, ice cream, and her family, in spite of their whining.
