Public Radio Tulsa's The Give and Take with StateImpact Oklahoma

Mar 16, 2017

The boys are back in town!  

And by boys, we mean the StateImpact reporters Joe Wertz and Logan Layden. Last fall they came to Tulsa to pitch in and help with the Fall Fund Drive but this spring they are back for YOU and the March Give and Take. 

StateImpact Oklahoma is a collaboration of KGOUKOSUKWGS and KCCU. Joe and Logan travel the state to report on the intersection of government, industry, natural resources and the Oklahoma workforce. You can read their reports here and can hear their stories on Public Radio 89.5

The Give and Take will be Thursday, March 23 at 5:30 p.m. at Lefty's on Greenwood,10 N. Greenwood Ave., on the main floor. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. There will be good food, good people, good conversation, AND door prize drawings for Public Radio Tulsa swag.

Join us for civil conversation and the lively exchange of ideas. We'll visit with the two reporters about recent news, trends they are seeing in Oklahoma, and then you'll have the opportunity to ask them questions and let them know what investigative stories you would like to see!

Check out our Facebook event and invite others to join you!
