Oklahoma's Own Originals

Griffin Media is proud to produce original, top-notch programming that keeps Oklahomans safe, informed and entertained.

These Oklahoma's Own Originals are created locally by our award-winning teams in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. The 30-minute and hour-long television specials are shared on News 9 and News On 6, News9.com and NewsOn6.com, and our streaming apps available to download for free on Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV.

From Oklahoma wheat fields to powerful lightning shows and bustling scenes of downtown Oklahoma City, dozens of beautiful original photographs line the halls of the new News 9 downtown offices, but one photo in particular overlooking the newsroom caught the eye of a News 9 viewer on the very first morning show from 100 W. Main St.
