OETA studio named in honor of ECU grad

Ada —  

The Oklahoma Educational Television Authority Board of Directors named the Oklahoma Network’s Oklahoma City studio in honor of longtime station manager and broadcasting veteran Bill Thrash.

William C. “Bill” Thrash Studio is home to a majority of OETA’s Oklahoma productions, including the OETA Movie Club, Oklahoma News Report, Oklahoma Forum, The People’s Business, Oklahoma Votes, Oklahoma Capitol Connection and others.

Thrash is a 1961 East Central University graduate. The television studio at ECU — the William C. Thrash Studio — is named in honor of him as well. That studio opened in 2009 when the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center was opened.

“We have done our best to maintain high standards and raise the quality bar of studio television production through the years in OETA’s multifaceted studio,” Thrash said.

OETA Executive Director Dan Schiedel said naming the studio after Thrash, an Oklahoma broadcast veteran, is an excellent way to honor his accomplishments.
