You’re invited on Saturday, April 6, to our second induction into the OU Student Media Hall of Fame — but just as important, we hope you’ll take this opportunity to reunite with your Daily, Sooner and Student Media Advertising colleagues.
Please order tickets now and get us on your calendar! The reception will start at 6 p.m. with dinner to follow at 7 at the National Weather Center, 120 David L. Boren Blvd. in Norman.
The last time we did this, two years ago, we celebrated The Oklahoma Daily’s centennial. This time, The Daily will share the spotlight with Sooner yearbook and the Student Media Advertising enterprise. We know many of you were sorry to miss our 2016 event, so be sure you don’t miss this one.
Ed Livermore Sr., Oklahoma newspaper pioneer
Harold Keith, public relations pioneer and Newbery Medal-winning author
Carol Burr, award-winning editor and university patron
Karen Wicker, founder and CEO of Candor
Johnny Rard, award-winning corporate marketing executive
Jack Willis, former Daily adviser
