Jason Doyle Oden is contributing editor of The McCarville Report. Mike McCarville said Oden, known in professional broadcasting as “Jason Doyle,” has been writing for the site and will now take on additional duties.
“Jason’s years of experience in the news business, and covering politics and government, plus his Internet savvy, make him an ideal companion,” McCarville said.
Jason grew up in Union City. It was an encounter with on air radio personalities which led him to becoming involved with the media throughout his career. He started as an intern at Oklahoma City’s KJ-103 in the early 1990s eventually joining its top rated morning show. He moved to Kansas City to entertain and inform audiences there in the mid 1990s. He returned home in 2002 and returned to the Oklahoma City airwaves at KTOK in 2003, working there as a reporter when McCarville was an on-air host and station program director. Since then, Jason has been involved with local radio and television stations in various capacities, including political correspondent, business reporter, and content provider across the growing digital and social media platforms for those broadcast stations. He even spent a couple of years as a public relations/marketing director and Chief Information Officer for a local software company.
The award-winning broadcaster left the business at the end of 2014 to begin working as a freelance writer and media consultant. Jason writes about energy, business, politics, popular culture, and Oklahoma for various outlets, including OK Energy Today and the magazine Splurge.
He is the afternoon host at radio station KTOK.
Coffee, beer, and outdoor cooking are Jason’s last remaining vices. He’s a science fiction nerd and a history buff. Jason is married with three grown children.
