Kelly Ogle named to OSU Faculty…

We have some good news to report, Bub!

18 months or so after his unceremonious departure, former News 9 evening anchor Kelly Ogle – Lord of the Teleprompter, Prince of the Package Play, and Keeper of the Family Arms at Camp Chyron – is now on the scene and on the story as a faculty member at Oklahoma State University!

According to a press release from the school, Kelly is joining the School of Media and Strategic Communications where he will teach future Ogles the art of television broadcasting. 

Via OSU:

Former KWTV anchor and Oklahoma State University alumnus Kelly Ogle will be joining the School of Media and Strategic Communications (SMSC) faculty this fall.  

OSU alumnus Kelly Ogle Ogle, a 1985 graduate of the program, will be preparing future journalists to enter the field of broadcast journalism.   

In the classroom, Ogle will be working with OSU’s student newscast, The Daily O. In a new broadcast performance course, Ogle will teach students best practices to train their voices and to better visually communicate their message to audiences. 

Although I’m disappointed Kelly didn’t choose one of the other job paths we suggested – I was pulling for him to be the next evening anchor at KOKH Fox 25 – I think this is great news. 

Over the past 18 months, Kelly’s reportedly been spotted roaming the OKC media badlands on foot near N. Britton and Eastern, walking aimlessly along the vast empty fields and ponds of TV antenna-land, mumbling “Tonight at 10… Tonight at 10,” so he probably needed a new project to keep him busy.

It’s also a big relief Karl Torp.

According to the Ogle Mole Network, he recently reported to News 9 management that a tall, shadowy curly-haired giant has been spotted on his doorbell camera leaving two bloody pennies on his doorstep. Now that Kelly has found new work, hopefully, that will stop. 

Here’s what Kelly said about the new gig:

“I am eager to share what I’ve learned over the last 40 years in broadcasting,” Ogle said. “I want students to finish my class having learned the techniques and mindset to become top-notch news anchors and reporters.”

That’s cool. Kelly has the news chops and experience to teach students well. In addition to that, he can recruit young news squires and maidens and make sure they’re always loyal to House Ogle, and loyal lieges to Abigail and Katelyn.

Anyway, we wish Kelly the best of luck in the new gig. Pistols Firing or whatever. 

Stay with The Lost Ogle. We’ll keep you advised.
