With construction of the studio nearly complete and with no time to waste, we fired up our new HD switcher and launched the control room and loft set. Our first guest that morning was Admiral Steven K. Galson, Acting Surgeon General of the United States of America, and later that evening, Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett made a visit to the studio.
Forming an alliance with Oklahoma’s First Lady and the governor’s initiative on living a healthier lifestyle, Admiral Galson recorded several PSAs focused around underage drinking and smoking.
On that same day, Mayor Cornett unveiled plans to develop approximately 700 acre area between downtown and the Oklahoma River. This initiative, called Core to Shore is scheduled for completion in 2012. He also talked about Dells recent announcement to layoff part of its workforce and his recent appearance on the Ellen show.
