Our History

It started as a labor of love, a desire to cover and report news in a fresh, unique and unfettered format, and Oklahoma Gazette’s first issue circulated 2,000 copies on October 15, 1979.

Our 40 years of sustained success is due to the dedication of our talented staff and our shared commitment to quality journalism.

Fiercely local and independent, Oklahoma Gazette focuses on quality-of-life issues and serves as the metro area’s arts and entertainment authority, now circulating 40,000 copies each week and reaching over 130,000 weekly readers.
