In Early November 2006, our NewsOK partners began using a brand-new, state-of-the-art news set, specially designed for HD broadcasting.

From left, sports director Dean Blevins, anchors Kelly Ogle, Amanda Taylor and chief meteorologist Gary England on the new NEWS 9 set. This photo was taken during a rehearsal at their studio in Oklahoma City, Thursday, October 26, 2006.

Capturing in HD, SkyNews 9 is the newest member of the Griffin Communication’s team. It is also one of the fastest and first HD helicopters in the country. Pictured are both choppers from KOTV Channel 6, Tulsa, and the KWTV NEWS 9, Oklahoma City. The former Ranger 9 helicopter, now repainted and called SkyNews 6, was assigned to Tulsa’s KOTV, Saturday, April 1, 2006.
