Kevin Ogle News
Sons, friends recall broadcaster’s legacy
Former Oklahoma City newscaster Jack Ogle’s rich broadcasting career spanned five decades and many facets of the business, from radio to television, from news to sports, from reporting to doing commentaries.
Ogle carried them off with the style and personality that made him one of the state’s most popular broadcasters.
“Jack had a tremendous personality, and his personality carried across on the air,” said KFOR-4 sportscaster Bob Barry Sr., a longtime colleague and friend. “He also had a tremendous voice. He really just rattled the wall.”
Ogle died Monday in Sallisaw from a heart ailment. He was 68.
Services will be at 5 p.m. today at Agent Funeral Home in Sallisaw. An additional service will be at 10 a.m. Monday in Oklahoma City. The site had not been determined.
Ogle’s broadcasting legacy is carried on by his three sons, who are all news anchors for Oklahoma City TV stations.
Kevin Ogle, 40, anchors the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts at KFOR-4, where he works with Kent Ogle, 39, who handles morning newscasts. Kelly Ogle, 38, anchors the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts for KWTV-9.
Jack Ogle’s successful career helped inspire his sons to enter broadcasting.
We were always around it and always found it interesting,” Kent Ogle said. “We all kind of got there in different ways. But once we got there, he was real helpful and a real inspiration.”
Kelly Ogle said, “Dad dragged us along on the stories he covered. We got to see it all… be a part of historic events. Dad made it look easy.”
Jack Ogle, who attended the University of Oklahoma, got his start in radio in the ’50s, working for Norman stations KNOR and WNAD. He also played trumpet in his own band and dabbled in theater at OU.
Ogle got into sportscasting, covering Norman High School games and later had his endurance tested by doing play-by-play of American Legion baseball games.
“Sometimes he did two doubleheaders by himself, reading all the commercials,” Kent Ogle said. “He said that was a real test in bladder control.”
Jack Ogle tried out to become OU play-by-play announcer in 1961 but lost out to Barry. But the two paired on OU broadcasts for 12 years, with Ogle handling the color.
After WKY lost the OU contract to KTOK-AM 1000, the pair switched to the Oklahoma State broadcasts for five years.
Ogle moved from WKY radio to WKY-TV, now KFOR, in the late 1970s. He served as a state government reporter, news anchor and news director.
“Dad was real conversational in an era when there were a lot of stiff announcers,” Kent Ogle said. “I think Dad kind of broke the mold, at least in our area.”
Among those he worked with were Bob Dotson, now an NBC News correspondent, and photographer Darrell Barton, now a free-lance photographer for the networks.
They won a national Emmy award for a documentary on blacks in the state titled “Through the Looking Glass Darkly,” Kent Ogle said.
Jack Ogle gave up his WKY news director duties in 1976 and left the station a few years later.
“He kind of got burned out at being the news director,” Barry said. “Back then, Channel 4 was way behind everybody else. Jack was news director, anchor, writer, producer and on the desk. He had about five different jobs that they now have five different people doing.”
Ogle went on to do commentaries for the three major Oklahoma City commercial stations: KOCO-5, KWTV-9 and WKY-TV.
His expertise on covering the state Capitol made him a natural for commenting on government.
“Dad liked politics a lot,” Kent Ogle said. “He liked to rail on the Legislature, and he had some humor pieces.”
His commentary “A Real Oklahoman,” on the state’s 75th anniversary, was printed because of viewer demand, and about 20,000 copies were sent out, Kent Ogle said.
“It had some funny things in it,” he said. “He said things like he knew heaven would have blackjack trees and short grass and quarter horses. And everybody knows the greatest horse race isn’t at Churchill Downs, it was back in 1889 around here.”
Even after moving to Sallisaw in the late ’80s to retire on Kerr Lake, Jack Ogle couldn’t stay away from broadcasting. He covered high school football games and hosted a morning talk show.
He also hosted the “Arklahoma Outdoors” show for Fort Smith TV station KFSM-5. The week before he died, he had what Kent called “the galaxy’s only” jug-fishing tournament.
“For a trophy, he had a gold-plated Clorox bottle with a carved-out catfish on top,” Kent said.
Kent Ogle said he and his brothers would like to copy their father on that show.
“We would like to continue to follow in his footsteps and go ahead and all get hunting and fishing shows, where they pay you to kick back.”
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to Kids We Care (telephone: 844-2273), a fishing camp for children affected by tragedies.
