OKLAHOMA heritage

Griffin Communications has been serving Oklahoma communities for more than 55 years.

The Griffin roots go back more than 100 years and the communications business can be traced back to radio in the 1930s, but television changed everything when KWTV signed on December 20, 1953.

From those pioneering roots Griffin Communications outreach has grown and led to numerous “firsts.” These include:
• The world’s tallest tower (1,565 feet)
• Oklahoma’s first color radar & the first commercial Doppler radar nationwide
• Oklahoma’s first news helicopter & the first full HD news-gathering helicopter in the country
• First use of StreetScope for television in the nation
• First broadcast automated weather warning system in the country
• First station to gather video from cellular telephones, capturing pictures of a large tornado east of Enid

Not one to rest on their laurels, Griffin Communications continues to innovate and lead while drawing on the lessons of the past.

Thirty-two year career at KOTV has had lasting impact on Hood and Tulsa community

TULSA, Okla. – Terry Hood, the long-time News On 6 anchor who currently co-anchors the 6 and 10 p.m. weeknight newscasts with Craig Day, recently announced her upcoming retirement in October. Hood’s last newscast will be Thursday, Oct. 24 at 6 p.m.

“This announcement is really bittersweet for me,” Hood said. “I’m leaving my News On 6 family and viewers whom I’ve always loved. I’ve experienced pretty much everything Tulsa has to offer in my 32 years at News On 6, but without a doubt, it’s the Tulsa community and people who I’ll miss the most. I’ve grown so much as a person and in my profession in my time here. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to stay at one place for so long and I’m glad that my departure is on the best of terms. Now, I’m looking forward to building a new life with my fiancé in Oklahoma City.”

Hood joined News On 6 in 1987 and is an Oklahoman by choice. She grew up in Colorado and briefly worked with a local news station in Casper, Wyoming before joining the Griffin Communications family. She received her bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Colorado.

Throughout her 32-year career, Hood’s writing and reporting have earned her a number of awards from professional organizations and associations, including an Emmy award in 2008 for coverage of the December 2007 ice storm. She has had the pleasure of telling the stories of many prominent Oklahomans and those with Oklahoma ties who have shaped our world, including Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Ryan Tedder, Kristin Chenoweth, Dr. Tom Coburn, Scott Pelley and General Norman Schwarzkopf.

Hood has volunteered extensively in Tulsa on behalf of News On 6. She’s an avid supporter of The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma helping to raise community awareness and thousands of dollars for the Food for Kids Backpack program.

“Terry’s impact on our station as well as Tulsa has been immense,” said David Griffin, Griffin Communications’ Chairman and CEO. “She is the definition of a professional with intelligence, charisma and charm to boot. Her commitment to our station and to Tulsa is unmatched, and I want to thank her for her steadfast leadership. Her work at the news desk, in the field and even volunteering in the community shows her big heart. She’s a very versatile anchor who we’re sad to see go, but know it’s on her own terms, so we couldn’t be happier for her. We wish her the best in Oklahoma City and beyond.”

Murrah Federal Building bombing and subsequent trials of Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols to reporting on the devastation left behind by the 1999 and 2013 Moore and El Reno tornadoes, Ogle has helped Oklahomans through some of our state’s darkest days.

Ogle has also concentrated on building the state up whether it was through his award-winning “Kelly's Kids” segment that helped match hundreds of children with quality mentors through Big Brother Big Sisters or his “You Paid For It” reports where he chronicled wasteful spending of taxpayers’ dollars.

“If you have a question about a script, Kelly is the one to ask,” said Ogle’s longtime desk partner and co-anchor Amanda Taylor. “He is a wealth of knowledge. But maybe more importantly is how he shares that knowledge. He never makes you feel dumb! He builds people up and encourages all of us to be better just by his own attitude. He is a great journalist... and a great person.”

Throughout his 30-year career, Ogle has earned a number of awards from professional organizations and associations for his excellence in journalism including Oklahoma Media Network’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017 and an Edward R. Murrow Award in 2009 for coverage of “Oklahoma Tornadoes”.

Ogle considers his family his best work. He and his wife have four children, all named after Oklahoma towns. Ogle is also an avid golfer, woodworker and yardman.

News On 6 Sports Director Celebrates Career Achievement
John Holcomb Looks Back at 25-Year Career

TULSA, Okla. –News On 6 Sports Director John Holcomb celebrates his 25th anniversary of leading local sports coverage in Green Country today, November 10.

“When I came to Tulsa, I was excited to jump into such a great sports market and I quickly realized I had a lot to learn,” said Holcomb. “After 25 years, I’m still learning. I’ve been so blessed to have such great support from home from Jeanna and our girls and also from my work family. There are too many people to mention here who have impacted me and supported our work. In this business, you don’t have time to slow down much, and I look forward to many more years of doing what I always dreamed of doing when I was a kid.”

Holcomb began his career at News On 6 in 1995 and has held the position of sports director since September 1999. You can find him anchoring the weeknight sportscasts for News On 6 at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. and co-hosting the “Oklahoma Ford Sports Blitz” statewide on Sunday nights. And, during high school football season, Holcomb also anchors the "Oklahoma Ford Friday Football Blitz” – Tulsa's high school football show.

“John is one of the most affable, likeable, easy going, honest, hardworking human beings I’ve ever met,” said Chuck Maulden, News On 6 Director of Content. “We’re grateful he’s leading and directing our sports coverage. John is a huge part of our success in creating the most-watched newscast in Tulsa.”

Holcomb attended Oklahoma Baptist University on a basketball scholarship, graduating with a degree in journalism in May 1988. Today, Holcomb is entering his 16th season as the radio color analyst for OSU football and his 14th season as the analyst for OSU men's basketball on the Cowboy Sports Network. He has also done play-by-play work for Cox high school football and basketball broadcasts.

“John is a pro’s pro. He makes it look easy. And, it’s really not,” said Dean Blevins, News 9 Sports Director. “John’s easy-going disposition helps him in most all areas of his work. Players and coaches trust him. Coworkers enjoy working alongside him. I’ve been doing this for over 35 years, and no one has been better to work with than John.”

Throughout his 25-year career, Holcomb has earned a number of awards for outstanding sports reporting and analysis including being named the Oklahoma Sportscaster of the Year in 2001, 2002, 2011 and 2019 by the National Sports Media Association.

He loves basketball, golf, tennis and, in his words, “about anything else that requires some coordination without total physical exhaustion.” Holcomb and his wife Jeanna have two daughters, Melody and Maggie, and are members of New Beginnings Church in Bixby.

Tige & Daniel Join 98.5 KVOO
Nashville-based Duo Moving to Green Country

TULSA, Okla. – Tige Rodgers and Daniel Baker will be shaking up mornings in Tulsa this December when they join Amber Glaze and 98.5 KVOO.

Rodgers and Baker, more commonly known as Tige & Daniel, have been working together to play music, talk and attempt comedy since they met after graduating from Auburn University. Their award-winning work has been syndicated nationally as well as heard locally on WGTR in Myrtle Beach, WTQR in Greensboro and most recently on WSIX in Nashville.

“We are so excited to be moving to Tulsa and can’t wait to get started,” said Tige & Daniel. “Tulsa has such an amazing country music history and scene that we’re looking forward to being a part of. We’re profoundly grateful to Griffin Communications for this amazing opportunity and we’re thrilled to be alongside Amber as hosts of the legendary KVOO. We’ll try not to blow it!”

The Tige and Daniel Show is known for mixing great music with laugh out loud commentary and signature bits like Sensual Shoutouts, Me So Corny and Tiny Couch Interviews in which Tige and Daniel interview folks on a couch made for only two but all three are made to squeeze in.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Tige & Daniel to Tulsa and to build something exciting at KVOO with them,” said KVOO co-host Amber Glaze. “The three of us just clicked and after our initial meeting, I think we all agreed there’s a lot they can learn from me.”

“Tige & Daniel’s content and creativity is going to blow Tulsa away and really set KVOO apart,” said Steve Hunter, Griffin Radio Director of Operations. “So excited to team them with Amber Glaze on the new morning show. This is just the beginning of things to come on KVOO.”
