Griffin Media honored for partnership with Langston University at Regents Awards Program

Langston University was honored for its partnership and generous donation from Griffin Media at the 2024 Regents Business Partnership Excellence Awards Program.
Published 03/28/2024

Oklahoma’s own Griffin Media received a Regents Business Partnership Excellence Award at the 2024 Regents Business Partnership Excellence Awards Program on March 7 for their partnership with Langston University.

Each year, universities can nominate businesses for the awards, and Langston University recommended Griffin Media be honored at this year’s Awards Program.

In 2022, Griffin Media made the largest corporate donation to Langston University in university history, gifting Dear Langston with its KWTV News 9 building in Oklahoma City. The gift included a fully operational television studio complete with the land and equipment, and it now houses the LU-OKC Campus. It’s through this generosity from Griffin Media that LU communications students will receive training with state-of-the-art equipment that will prepare them for the world upon earning their degree.

The site is also home to the Center for Media and Community Advancement at LU, funded in part with a grant from the Inasmuch Foundation and the generous support of the Kirkpatrick Foundation. The Center is part of Langston University Forward Together Project: A Solutions Journalism Initiative.

The main goals of the Forward Together Project are to leverage the University’s resources to be a source for change and advancement through the power of media and solutions journalism; to develop LU students’ skills in storytelling, digital marketing, and audience engagement under the supervision of faculty, staff and industry experts; and to produce a report that might serve as a roadmap for the future of Oklahoma and a guide for ongoing storytelling, engagement, and research.
