ABOUT THE OKLAHOMAN.
For more than 110 years, The Oklahoman has been the state’s most trusted source of news and information. Constantly adapting to how our customers want their news delivered, we’ve added several products beyond print, including in-depth video coverage, a vibrant digital experience, and a full suite of easy-to-use mobile and tablet apps.
But our work doesn’t end there. We’re deeply committed to our community through both financial and volunteer support. Every day we aim to better serve our citizens and power positive change, all in an effort to help a great state become even greater.
As of February 2015, we relocated to the heart of Oklahoma City. With the new location comes a renewed drive toward our chief commitment: to make the state a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
THE BIGGEST TEAM.
The Oklahoman has more reporters and resources than anyone else in the state. Why? To ensure our customers receive the quality of information they deserve each and every day.
THE BEST COVERAGE.
With the biggest news team in the state, we’re able to cover the stories our competitors don’t — with a depth our competitors just can’t match. No one gives you more local news, features, entertainment, or sports.
THE MOST AWARDS.
On top of everything else, no one wins more awards than The Oklahoman. In fact, Editor and Publisher recently named us one of the Top Ten Newspapers Doing It Right, and our sports team was recently named one of the best in the nation by AP Sports Editors.
OUR PURPOSE STATEMENT.
Amid an ever changing world, one uplifted by achievement yet rife with disappointment, we create a brand new suite of products every day with an overriding principle in mind:
We are Oklahomans.
Our goal is to help make our state a better place to live, work and raise a family. We strive to create real value for our customers and advertisers by:
- Serving as the fabric of our communities and their various interests.
- Ensuring a voice for those who need one.
- Safeguarding our fellow citizens by exposing corruption and injustice.
- Providing valuable results for our advertisers.
- Fostering communities of well-informed citizens.
- Promoting opportunities for fun and interaction.
- Helping lead change when change is needed.
This is our commitment to you, and ourselves.
“Our Purpose Statement is not a slogan or a tagline — it’s a statement of who and what we are. It embodies our dedication to democracy, our promise of innovation and ease of access for our customers, and, above all else, our commitment to forging a brighter future for Oklahoma.”
