OSU Selects Lyndall Stout as the New Anchor for SUNUPTue, 19 Oct 2010 19:29:35 CDT
SUNUP, the weekly television production of the OSU Division of Agriculture that is broadcast weekends on OETA, has announced a replacement for Clinton Griffiths, who left the program earlier this year to take a position with the AgDay program. She is Lyndall Stout, who has worked in recent years in commercial television news in Pennsylvania and most recently, in Arkansas.
Stout, a native of Pawhuska, has worked in television for 12 years as a news anchor and reporter.
“I’m really excited to be back in Oklahoma and am looking forward to being a part of the quality television program SUNUP produces every week for OETA,” Stout said. “I grew up near my grandparents’ farm in Osage County and have many fond memories and experiences that I hope to draw upon in my storytelling each week.”
She received her bachelor’s degree in journalism from Arkansas Tech University and her master’s degree in mass communication from Louisiana State University. Stout previously worked as the main anchor at WBRE-TV, the NBC affiliate in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and as weekend anchor at KARK-TV, the NBC affiliate in Little Rock. She is a three-time Emmy nominated reporter and anchor and has also been recognized by the Arkansas Associated Press for excellence in documentary reporting.
Lyndall Stout takes over the host duties of SUNUP immediately- and will be seen this coming weekend on Saturday morning for the first time.
The original SUNUP was a daily program seen mornings on OETA- but was cancelled several years ago. The Dean of the Division of Agriculture at Oklahoma State University, Dr. Robert Whitson, promoted the idea of putting a SUNUP program back on the air- and was successful in 2008 in signing SUNUP back on the air- this time as a half hour weekly show, designed to focus on Oklahoma agriculture.
