OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – KFOR/KAUT President and General Manager Wes Milbourn has taken on another important role – President of the Rotary Club of Oklahoma City.

The Rotary Club of OKC installed Milbourn as its 113th president during the club’s inaugural event at the First Americans Museum on Tuesday.

Jerrod Shouse, president of Shouse Consulting, was the previous Rotary Club President.

“Under the great leadership of Jerrod Shouse, the Rotary Club of Oklahoma City has seen several milestones this past year including the most money ever raised for our annual One Pledge Campaign of over $112,000,” Milbourn said. “He also led the charge of returning our club’s membership to a pre-pandemic level of more than 600 members, continuing our ranking as the 3rd largest Rotary Club in the world.”
