RSU-TV to receive 2012 Governor’s Arts Award

CLAREMORE — Oklahoma Arts Council has announced that Rogers State University Public Television will be honored with a 2012 Governor’s Arts Award for its contributions to arts in Oklahoma. 

RSU Public TV joins seven other organizations and 11 individuals who will be recognized during the 37th Annual Governor’s Arts Awards, to be presented by Gov. Mary Fallin during a Nov. 8 ceremony at the state capitol. The ceremony will begin at 4 p.m. in the 4th Floor Rotunda with a reception on the capitol’s first floor to follow. The event is free and open to the public.
“During the past 25 years, I have witnessed RSU Public Television grow from a nascent idea into a staple for households throughout northeastern Oklahoma,” RSU President Dr. Larry Rice said. “RSU Public TV has proven to be a crucial asset in the university’s outreach efforts to bring educational and cultural opportunities to the community.” 
In addition to programs supporting the university’s educational mission, RSU Public TV has been widely acclaimed for carrying high-quality cultural content and award-winning original programming. During the past six years, the station has earned two dozen national and regional awards for its original programs and documentaries. 
RSU will be presented a “Media in the Arts Award” given to media outlets that demonstrate commitment to the arts in Oklahoma documented through public awareness, support, fairness, initiative, creativity and professionalism in reporting. Also being recognized in the category this year are KOSU Radio in Stillwater and OKIE Magazine in Lawton.
As the only full-powered public television station licensed to a public university in Oklahoma, RSU Public TV provides educational, cultural and general interest programming to an audience of 1.3 million viewers in northeastern Oklahoma, and the Tulsa metropolitan area. RSU Public TV broadcasts via DISH, DirectTV and UHF Channel 35 and is carried on 76 cable systems including Cox Cable Channel 109 (35.1) and 110 (35.2) in Tulsa and Claremore.
