Tech Alumna Returns to Her Roots

Lyndall Stout, a graduate of the journalism program at Arkansas Tech University, has been selected to host a statewide agriculture television program in her native Oklahoma.

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 23, Stout will take over hosting duties for SUNUP, a weekly program that airs on Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA) stations throughout the Sooner State.

SUNUP is produced in association with the Oklahoma State University Division of Agricultural and Natural Resources.

According to a news release from the OSU Division of Agricultural and Natural Resources, SUNUP “focuses on Oklahoma agriculture and is dedicated to helping farmers and ranchers do their jobs better and more efficiently. This includes highlighting the latest research, providing updates for current crops or covering the issues that matter most.”

“I’m really excited to be back in Oklahoma and am looking forward to being a part of the quality television program SUNUP produces every week for OETA,” said Stout, who is a native of Pawhuska, Okla., in the news release announcing her as host. “I grew up near my grandparents’ farm in Osage County and have many fond memories and experiences that I hope to draw upon in my storytelling each week.”

Stout graduated from Arkansas Tech with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1994. She is a former member of the Arkansas Tech Alumni Association Board of Directors.

Her background in television includes work at KARK in Little Rock, WBRE in Pennsylvania. She is a three-time Emmy nominee, and she was honored by the Arkansas Associated Press for excellence in documentary reporting.
