Terri Jordan gave a tour of the Julian P. Kanter Political Commercial Archive at the University of Oklahoma’s Political Communication Center. She showed the extent of the archive and the equipment required as she talked about how the collection was founded and maintained. Some political ads were shown as she talked about how political television commercials have changed over time, reflecting the changing landscape of American politics and culture.
C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on April 9-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
