I’m Lindsay Houts, and if you’re an average NewsOK reader, you probably have no idea who I am.
I’m part of the team that organizes the content you see on NewsOK and someone who (hopefully) makes NewsOK a great reading experience for you. I hang with the sports crew, managing NewsOK Sports and all of its inside pages (OU, OSU, Thunder, and beyond).
Like the rest of the team of NewsOK editors, I’m almost always behind the curtain. Occasionally you’ll see a tweet tagged with ^lh or a sports blog with my byline, but that’s the most you’ll see of me.
I have a life outside of NewsOK editing, social media, and sending text alerts, though. Originally from California, I’ve lived in Oklahoma for (almost) 5 years. I’ve fallen head over heels for Oklahoma City and I’m a self-confessed serial volunteer — I divide my time between hanging with the kids at City Rescue Mission, serving on the media advisory council of Parent Promise and getting young professionals involved in the Oklahoma City arts community as the President of the Associate Board of the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. You’ll find me working tables at deadCENTER, hanging out in booths at the Oklahoma City Festival of the Arts, tutoring 3rd graders at N. Highland Elementary School (go bears!), and out on the Oklahoma River, rowing up a storm.
In my previous life at OPUBCO, I was a social media manager, copywriter, event planner, and all-around Jack (Jane?) of all trades.
I tell bad jokes, I have a small addiction to Twitter, and I love people who love good grammar.
