KFOR celebrates Nexstar Media Group’s 25th anniversary with ‘Founder’s Day of Caring’ at Oklahoma nonprofits


OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – KFOR’s parent company, Nexstar Media Group is celebrating 25 years of broadcasting by giving back to the communities it serves around the nation, including several organizations here in the Sooner State.

In 2016, Nexstar’s Founder, Chairman and CEO, Perry Sook, established the company’s “Founder’s Day of Caring.”

“So the best thing we can do is to give back to our communities as a thank you for how they helped to make our companies and build our companies,” said Perry Sook, Nexstar’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO. 

On Thursday, KFOR volunteered with two local organizations that have done so much for our state, The Salvation Army and Pepper’s Ranch

Both organizations say company partnerships like these are life changing. 

“Just knowing that there’s somebody there to have your back whenever you need it,” said Traci Jinkens, Dir. of Development for Salvation Army of Central Oklahoma. 

“This is all built on the generosity of other people,” said Amber Simmons, Pepper’s Ranch
Dir. Of Equestrian Services and Capitol Projects.
