  • KOSU and The Spy moving to near Farmers Market

    The local NPR station which features the independent station The Spy is moving to a much larger space in the old Farmers Union Building which was originally built as a hub for agricultural producers in 1921.

    Renovation of the space is set to begin this fall with the opening of the new studios planned for March 2024

    Press release:


    KOSU and The Spy have announced a major move to 18 N Klein Ave., a building located in a burgeoning area west of downtown Oklahoma City.

    KOSU’s new 5,200-square-foot studio will not only allow for future expansion but will house music and news production under one roof, creating a new synergy for the station’s staff and nonprofit partners. The new design for the space features seven new studios for community production, as well as work and meeting spaces for community journalism.

    “Surrounding ourselves with some of Oklahoma’s brightest and most creative visual and audio artists each day inspires our work and sparks the curiosity that becomes the award-winning stories, information and events that define KOSU and connect us with our community,” said KOSU Executive Director Rachel Hubbard.

    “We are pleased that KOSU and The Spy will be under the same roof, a continuation of the collaboration that has developed between the two organizations over the past 11 years. We view this location as a hub of activity and hope to contribute to the neighborhood where StarSpace 46, Beer City Music Hall, Stonecloud Brewing Company and the new Mexican Consulate already call home,” said Ferris O’Brien, owner of The Spy and the building the two entities will soon occupy.

    O’Brien said the historic space will be brought to life with new technology and visionary design, with the goal of elevating both KOSU and The Spy.
