ONR PROGRAMMING BULLETIN FOR January 18, 2019

ONR PROGRAMMING BULLETIN FOR January 18, 2019

Posted by Dustin Pyeatt on

Oklahoma’s only statewide news broadcast, the Oklahoma News Report (ONR), airs 7 p.m. CST, every Friday night on the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA). This award-winning broadcast offers an in-depth exploration of news and issues affecting all Oklahomans.

Some of the stories covered on this week’s Oklahoma News Report include:

  • Oklahoma hospitals have begun posting their prices for procedures online. A review of these price lists by Oklahoma Watch found that the prices listed do not reflect the full price and the listings are difficult to understand.
  • Public comment has been overwhelmingly opposed to a waiver being sought by state officials to put work requirements on thousands of Medicaid recipients. If federal officials approve the waiver, Oklahoma would be the first state not to expand the Medicaid program while adding work requirements to benefits.
  • ONR spent a day of training offered by The Canna CPAs from Boston, MA, learning what to know after you grow in Oklahoma.
  • And, sadly, one of the adult female Western lowland gorillas named Kelele at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden has died of a rare ailment.

Join us Friday night for these and other stories, business news and more on ONR.
