OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – In the wake of a tragedy, Oklahoma’s KOCO News offered to run KFOR News while KFOR’s staff attended a funeral for one of their own.
Barry was a University of Oklahoma alumnus.
He followed in a family legacy as the sports director after his father, Bob Barry Sr., the station’s sports director and main anchor for over 40 years, who died in 2011.
Linda Cavanaugh, an anchor for KFOR, tweeted at the general manager of KOCO to thank them for their support.
KOCO never actually did staff the KFOR newsroom, and other news stations offered to help KFOR as well.
