Angi Bruss and Kyle Roberts shot this video in preparation of this week’s Big 12 basketball tournaments.
More detailed explanation on this series soon. Angi and I knocked a few highlights of existing videos on NewsOK.tv.
Damon Fontenot is covering the Thunder announcements tonight: trade involving Tyson Chandler (who is on Twitter), new mascot and the game vs. the Hornets. Tim Money has been in Cushing all day covering the developments in the triple homicide. We have some video online, expect more soon.
The OKC Thunder held off New York last night at the Ford Center. NewsOK.tv’s Tim Money was there to get reaction from players and coaches. And he taped Mike Baldwin and Darnell Mayberry for some analysis, sponsored by our friends at Jackie Cooper BMW. Mike and Darnell really do a great job. They know their beat cold.
But what cracked me up is the setting of this video. Check out Mike and Darnell reporting from the Nicholson seats as they talk about the big lead the Thunder almost surrendered.
Damon Fontenot was on the scene Friday night as the OKC Thunder thumped Toronto.
Fontenot filed two videos, as we typically do from the Thunder games. We tape the post game press conference and grab The Oklahoman’s reporters for a post game analysis piece. The analysis is sponsored by Jackie Cooper BMW. And we thank them for that.
On Thursday, we posted two videos about travel delays at the airport due to fog: Fog closes Will Rogers to incoming flights and Fog in OKC (catchy headline, eh?) . This morning, NewsOK.tv’s Tanner Herriott was at Will Rogers World Airport as soldiers returned home for the holidays.
And holiday travel has resumed.
Tanner’s video will post later today. Here’s the accompanying story from Brian Sargent on NewsOK:
About 420 solders from Fort Sill are scheduled to leave from Will Rogers World Airport today for two weeks of holiday leave. Soldiers also are departing from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
About 2,700 soldiers from Fort Sill’s 434th Field Artillery Brigade are participating in the annual event, commonly known as ‘exodus’ or winter block leave, fort spokeswoman Emily Kelley said.
“I told my family all I wanted for Christmas was to come home,” said National Guard Pvt. 2nd Class Joshua Bliss.
Bliss, 23, hasn’t seen his family in Columbia, S.C., in about three months. He said he is looking forward to spending time with his family, especially his wife and 2-year-old daughter.
We taped four videos this morning in the OPUBCO Studios. Ed Kelley’s Oklahoma Matters commentary was about Pete Maravich. He was there to watch Pistol Pete’s performance at the State Fair Arena in 1968.
And we just wrapped up the daily energy update. It usually airs live at 2 pm. Yesterday, Oklahoma House Speaker Chris Benge spoke about touring an Arkansas nuclear plant, so we included a clip from Benge.
The day before Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Eve as it’s traditionally known, brings no shortage of workload in the OPUBCO Studios.
We taped four sports segments, including the 3-Pointer. This is a segment that airs before each Thunder home game at the Ford Center. Today, Mike Sherman, Berry Tramel and Mike Baldwin provided three talking points about Friday’s Thunder-Timberwolves game. Watch for it about 20 minutes before tip-off on the scoreboard above center court.
We almost taped former OKC Mayor Kirk Humphreys, who stopped by the lobby on a miscommunication with a reporter. This is a good example of the functionality of the OPUBCO Studios. We were set up for an N’Style fashion show on holiday clothes. When we caught word that Mr. Humphreys was downstairs, we had the studio ready for a one on one interview within five minutes. Turns out, the interview will be rescheduled to include current OKC Mayor Mick Cornett.
So, on with the fashion show. Cue the club music and warm up the catwalk…
